In order for small portable devices such as smartphones to achieve a slimmer size while incorporating new functions, space-saving components are required for use in these devices. Recently products equipped with a micro SIM, the smallest SIM card, have appeared on the scene and their demand is expected to increase rapidly.
JAE has now developed the SF50 series Micro SIM Card connector to meet this market trend. A pull lever made from strong plastic that resists bending and heat is used for card insertion and removal, and the connector features this strength in addition to compatibility with reflow mounting. The SF50 Series achieves an industry's lowest-in-class height of 1.2 mm as a SIM Card connector with the smallest-in-class size mounting space as a pull lever type.
