TE Connectivity introduces a sleek one-piece compressive board-to-board (BtB) connector, which enables connecting to a locally gold-plated secondary board by compression of the contacts. It is also scalable in a number of positions, height and pitch, which enhances design flexibility and has been adopted by major mobile device manufacturers.
This compressive BtB connector, made of high temperature thermal plastic and copper alloy, comes with dimples on the contact area, features preloaded contacts which are protected from damage due to accidental contact lifting. The 0.08mm co-planarity over all solder tails further reduces solder paste thickness, allowing for greater accuracy and expanded applications. The products are packaged in embossed tape to allow for automatic pick and place operations. This BtB connector is optimized for automated assembly to reduce costs and lead time.

With sleek design, scalability and optimization for automatic production, this first-generation one-piece BtB connector connects the main PCB board with secondary PCB boards -- for example, keypads, making it ideal for mobile devices, cameras, handheld GPS, etc.
