Industry’s shortest 1.45 mm when mounted
6P (poles) SIM card connector with a card guiding plate

We are pleased to announce that we have developed a “6P (poles) SIM card connector” with a card guiding plate for planned marketing in October. Specifics of this connector are given below.

This new product is a SIM card connector for mobile phones of the GSM system which is the unified European standard for digital mobile phones. To meet market needs for smallness and thinness, we have realized the industry’s shortest 1.45 mm profile for card guiding plate type connectors by using our exclusive one-piece molding technique and plate structure. (About 7% reduction from our previous equivalents)

The employment of a card guiding plate of a full-hold type not only for the side but for the top surface ensures higher contact reliability, without losing shortness in profile. A card stopper provided with the connector will enable the connector position to determine the card position. This product can also be used for USIM (UIM) cards.
