6P SIM card connector (low profile type)
Industry's lowest ever 1.55 mm short when mounted,
with a card guiding plate

We are pleased to announce the development of a 6P SIM card connector (low profile type) with a card guiding plate, for market introduction in January, 2007. Specifics of this connector are outlined below.

This new product is a SIM card connector intended for use in mobile phones of the GSM system, which is a European unified standard for digital mobile phones.

This connector stands only 1.55 mm above the PWB surface when mounted, which is the lowest in the industry. The PWB occupation area of this connector is smaller by about 6% than our previous equivalents, which will contribute to mobile phones being even thinner and smaller.

The card guiding plate, being a top surface full-hold type as well as the sides, provides high contact reliability. The provision of a card stopper will enable determination of the card position by the connector position.

This product can also be used for USIM (UIM) cards. For added convenience for our customers, we will augment our global marketing activities and try to meet our customers' unique requirements by providing customized products.

Note:SIM: Subscriber Identity Module
        USIM: Universal Subscriber Identity Module
        UIM: User Identity Module
        GSM: Global System for Mobile Communications
