With the SSAD series, Alps Electric offers a family of low-profile, surface-mountable slide switches with a 1.5mm travel length, a mounting area of 6.7-by-3.2mm and a height of 0.7mm.

The units are 50 percent thinner than the company's conventional models. The 1-pole/2-position switches are available with vertical slider positions and rated for switching currents of up to 1mA at a maximum of 5Vdc. They have a long operating life of up to 10,000 switching cycles.

Typical applications include portable devices such as digital cameras, mobile phones, and personal digital assistants (PDAs) where switches are used to change the operating mode or turning the power on/off. In addition, they can be used for switching functions of memory cards.

The slide switches require an operating force of 1N (1/-0.5N) maximum. The operating temperatures range is between -10C and 60C. Other specifications include a maximum initial contact resistance of 100 m?, an insulation resistance higher than 100 M? at 100Vdc, and a voltage proofness of 100Vac per minute.

The switches are suitable for lead-free reflow soldering and are available in minimum packing units of 5,000 pieces. For automatic mounting, they are packaged on embossed tape with a width of 16mm.
