Fast, capable and affordable customer-specific problem solvers from SUYIN: Board-to-board connectors as an example

SUYIN offers many different types of board-to-board (BTB) connectors. This broad selection begins with versions featuring contact configurations that range from very simple to highly complex and cover a wide variety of pitches – from 0.5 mm (fine pitch) all the way to 2.54 mm. The fact that the overwhelming majority of these products are custom solutions comes as no surprise, because SUYIN is one of the very few East Asian connector vendors that are able to realize custom developments or modifications (for example, with regard to the pin length, gold plating, housing or packaging) at absolutely competitive prices.
Additional characteristics that set SUYIN apart include fast, comprehensive, and highly capable customer support on location coupled with knowledge gained through many years of experience in meeting the special technical challenges and stringent quality requirements that European customers face. These advantages are then combined with the capabilities offered by ultramodern and extremely flexible design, manufacturing and testing facilities in East Asia, and then rounded off with punctual delivery and highly attractive pricing. In conjunction with electronica 2010, which is taking place from 9 – 12 November in Munich, SUYIN is demonstrating its capabilities in this area with many custom-developed exhibits in hall B4 at booth 624.

A case in point: “Sandwich” pin headers with bottom-entry sockets

Some of the key requirements facing a European customer for a “tailored” BTB solution in industrial applications have included:

* Bridging particularly large distances (31 mm and 35.5 mm) between printed circuit boards
* Availability of variants with different numbers of positions and selectively loaded versions for different device families.
* A sturdy straight (vertical) version of the connector solution for through-hole (THT) mounting.


In the shortest possible time, SUYIN realized a complete, customer-specific board-to-board interconnect system for particularly large board distances of up to 35.5 mm at a pitch of 2.54 mm. These single-row sandwich pin headers are only partially loaded depending on the specific version and area of application. On their tops, all pin headers have two locating posts integrated into the sides of the housing for reliable mechanically coded connections with the female sockets. Furthermore, on their underside, they have a plastic snap-in fastener for sturdy anchoring on the printed circuit board. The matching female sockets, which permit bottom (pass-through) entry, are available in partially loaded versions as well.
