Yamaichi is extending its range of SIM card holders with the FMS008-6000-0 in a Super Low Profile Design. The height is only 1.5 mm. The component is fitted with a switch and comfortable push/push mechanism.
The low height of 1.5 mm and the generally small dimensions of 18.70 mm width x 29.90 mm depth make the connector well suited to designs with the smallest of space. The applications are used, amongst others, in GSM modules, mobile phones, POS terminals (point of sale), portable devices such as PDA Smart Phones and Personal Smart Card devices. The SIM card is sometimes also referred to as a SMART or SAM card (Secure Application Module).

The new card reader has eight pins instead of the conventional six contacts to date. The card reader can thus also be used for applications with extended safety functions.

The Yamaichi SIM card connector for SMT assembly to the upper side of the PCB (top mount) is fitted with tried and tested and comfortable push/push insertion and defined ejection mechanism from Yamaichi. The coplanarity of the contact is specified and guaranteed to 0.08 mm and can thus be safely used. The connector is delivered in Tape & Reel packaging for the fully automated pick-and-place assembly.

The Super Low Profile FMS008-6000-0 goes into series production from autumn 2006. Product drawings for adapting the PCB layout are of course already available.
