28 March 2011
With the FMS006-5100-0, Yamaichi is expanding its portfolio of high-quality SIM card readers with another six-pin version. The special feature of this reader is its ultra low profile, which at height of 1.4 mm can fit into the smallest of installation spaces. These top-mount card readers are manually operated. When inserted, the SIM card projects by 8.10 mm. This allows it to be removed conveniently.
Another outstanding feature are the gold-plated contacts, which have two-point contacts to offer continuous contact reliability in case of vibration or shock.
The insulation body of the card reader is made of LCP, while the metal cover and additional ribs are made of SUS. This ensures outstanding stability and coplanarity. The contacts are gold-plated.
The unit is mounted with SMT soldering on the top of the PCB (top-mount type).
The card reader is delivered on tape reel belts.
Yamaichi Electronics offers many other card card connectors for all available Flash and SIM card types in different form factors, such as microSD, miniSD, RS-MMC, MMCmicro, CompactFlash, xD Card, multicard versions, etc.
