ITT Industries delivers two-way surface mount Universal Contact
Aug 23, 2004
ITT Industries' surface mount Universal Contact is now available in a two-way version, delivering even greater benefits of miniaturization, versatility and cost reduction to a broad range of telecommunications and industrial applications.
Cannon's Universal Contact is designed to overcome traditional interconnect constraints where the contact is integral to the connecting device. The Universal Contact, as its name implies, allows designers to standardize interfaces across different devices. For example, it can be used for speaker, microphone, buzzer and antenna functions in mobile phones, as well as other PCB-mounted devices.
The new two-way Universal Contact is offered on a 1.5mm pitch, and measures just 2.5mm in free height. Maximum current rating for the selectively-plated gold over beryllium copper Universal Contact is 2A nominal and 3A peak at 3VDC. Lower volume prices are under $0.20 with lead-times of 4-6 weeks ARO.
