Mobile communications have evolved over the past 20 years and have led to new, complex applications. Initially, SIM cards were only used for security and identification on the network. Today they perform many everyday tasks. Users can make payments with a SIM card or use it as a ticket. It is even possible to securely download multimedia files or perform online banking transactions.
Suyin now offers the 33ZL version from its 254070FB Series, an 8-pin SIM card reader for mobile phones, notebook computers, navigation and other mobile applications. The card connector features a low mounting height of just 1.73mm and a push-push mechanism that makes it easy to use. It has a footprint of 19.3mm x 26.65mm (L x W) and a standard-mount design. In addition, the connector is equipped with a switch that reliably detects whether or not a card is currently inserted. Four soldering tags attached to the sides ensure high stability for anchoring on the PCB. The card connector’s operating life is specified at up to 5,000 mating cycles.
Further technical specifications include an operating temperature range between -40C and +85C and a maximum initial contact resistance of 100mohm at the connector contacts. The card connector is configured for a maximum of 10VDC and 0.5A per pin, says the company.More news from Suyin
