##IMAGE_1_R##As mobile devices such as smartphones incorporate increasingly higher functionality and slimmer designs, it is necessary to reduce the size of components embedded in these devices without compromising reliability. Connector contacts are usually formed by a pressing process, but currently available pressing technology has several drawbacks. For instance, with the conventional technology it is difficult to make the width of formed products smaller than the thickness of the original sheet to be pressed, and there are limitations to how far the bending radius of metal can be reduced. These drawbacks make it difficult to satisfy customer demand for greater miniaturization and higher contact reliability.
OMRON has circumvented these problems by developing a new electroforming technology based on further advancement of its microfabrication and materials technologies. This advancement has led to the development of a battery connector with a 2mm pitch and a 2.6mm depth, using subminiature contacts that are impossible to form with conventional press technology.Features-The industry's smallest pitch and depth
The XD2B's significantly reduced PCB footprint contributes to further miniaturization of devices and larger battery sizes.-High contact reliability
The XD2B's contact is substantially stronger than conventional pressed materials. Its spring-contact configuration fits tightly to the battery contact pad improving contact force, and providing greater resistance against momentary power outages caused by drop impacts.
