For low profile IO applications, these surface mount SIP socket and header strips are assembled parallel to their board surface. They are ideal for placement near the board edge for easy access test connections and creating pluggable adapter modules which can sit perpendicular to the motherboard (mated to a vertical connector,) effectively conserving precious board real estate.
Mill-Max Target Connectors provide a convenient mating surface to connect with Mill-Max spring pins. They can be utilized in any spring pin application requiring conductive lands. Examples are: board stacking, elevated circuits or recharging applications.
If you need to create a surface mount interconnect between two printed circuit boards, Mill-Max SMT Strip Sockets and Pin Headers provide the perfect combination for this application. Both the socket receptacle and the header pin feature a round stub-tail termination, providing the benefit of a reduced solder footprint inside the package outline. The .008" floating pin design compensates for the peaks and valleys found in uneven solder paste application on the board surface, promoting good solder joints.
Mill-Max is pleased to announce the development of a unique, low-profile, compliant body socket receptacle capable of press-fitting in FR-4 mounting holes between .041" - .044" (1,04mm – 1,12mm) in diameter.
Mill-Max's knock-out-bottom receptacles are discrete sockets for soldering into printed circuit boards. Twelve sizes are now available; ten have carrier tape as standard packaging. Tape packaging is becoming increasingly popular since it permits through-hole components to be placed simultaneously with surface mount parts on pick-'n-place assembly lines. The knock-out-bottom feature enables these sockets to be made short enough to stand upright in a carrier tape pocket. The OFP barrier then permits the sockets to be vacuum picked from the tape prior to placement in a hole in the circuit board.
Mill-Max is pleased to announce the development of several new SMT Spring-Loaded Connectors. All are offered as discrete contacts and many are available in tape and reel packaging.
