MPD offers free evaluation kits for Snap Dragon and MINI lithium battery holders. Deemed a whole new category of coin cell battery holders, Snap Dragons increase the reliability of open top coin cell holders through the use of a snap-on cover piece. Another new category of coin cell battery holders, Minis reduce the height of battery holders on PCBs. The first Mini released, the BU2032SM-JJ-MINI-GTR, is designed for use with CR2032 batteries. The component rises under 2 mm with an installed CR2032. This directly saves almost 3 mm in board height when compared to typical CR2032 battery holders. Evaluation boards are available free of charge from the company’s website. MEMORY PROTECTION DEVICES INC., Farmingdale, NY (631) 249-0001.
