Packaging & Interconnects: Ultra-Low-Profile Battery Connector Targets Mobile Applications

Designed for use with ultra-low-profile battery applications, the 9155 series connectors offer a contact beam static height of just 2.45 mm, providing a savings of 50% in height compared to existing commercial connectors. The connectors are available in three-contact positions and are spaced on 2.5-mm centers. Once they're fully deflected, the compressed height reduces to 1.3 mm above the board. All contacts are rated at 3 A. The 9155 series is supplied in tape and reel for automatic placement and features gold-plated contacts. Typical battery applications include mobile phones, PDAs, medical, personal mobile radio, and industrial systems. Price is approximately $0.50 each in 10,000-piece quantities.
