Three-Point SMT Contact Enables Reliable Automated Assembly

Harwin’s SYCAMORE surface-mount socket is said to provide superior pin retention and durability for high-volume applications manufactured using advanced automated systems. The component’s design features three points of contact, providing an assurance of continuity and robustness previously only available from two-piece assemblies that are rarely available on tape-and-reel. It is a single-part SMT socket design featuring a low profile of 0.3 mm above the PCB. Available in top and bottom entry versions, it accepts 1-mm or 1.5-mm diameter pins and is open-ended, so mating pin depth is not limited. Manufactured from Beryllium copper, contacts are gold-plated and operating temperature range spans -50°C to +125°C. Target markets include domestic and commercial gas detection systems, fire alarms, and metering systems. SYCAMORE devices are available now, packaged on tape-and-reel, with 1,400 parts per reel. For qualified entities, engineering samples are available.
