Molex has introduced the Pico-EZmate Slim 1.2mm Pitch Wire-to-Board Connector. It is designed to provide reliable connection in a compact profile that improves both reliability and assembly speed.
“As consumer electronics products get more compact, manufacturers are looking to reduce the overall device size while not sacrificing reliability or production flexibility,” said Rick Lee, global product manager, Molex. “By creating both a profile height of 1.2mm and including a vertical mating design, Molex has addressed the changing needs of the industry in a small, powerful package.”
The connector’s vertical mating design allows for fast and reliable assembly without the risk of improperly orienting or mating the connection. The polarization keys provide a further level of safety by preventing the mismating of the plug.
Ideal for use in mobile phones and tablets, entertainment devices and appliances, the Pconnector is best suited for electronics applications where device space is at a premium and manufacturing efficiency. It also reduces the overall PCB footprint in the device, compared to other connectors.
