Mill-Max's SMT strip sockets and pin headers implement a 0.008” floating-pin design to compensate for uneven solder paste application on the board surface with a round stub-tail termination. Pin-to-pin co-planarity can be held to 0.005” for pin counts up to 20 positions (2×10). The sockets and headers are available in 2 to 64 position single-row or 4 to 72 position double-row (2×2 to 2×36.) configurations. The pin headers are precision-machined using brass alloy 360 ½ hard. The sockets are assembled with beryllium copper contact clips, which make a gas-tight connection to the mated header pins.
