SMK's JSS series slide switch

SMK has announced the development and sample shipment of its JSS series slide switches (single-side momentary). These devices were designed to prevent malfunction of digital cameras, portable audio equipment and notebook PCs caused by unintended movement of switches while these devices are in bags or some containers.

These devices use momentary action (spring-back system) to prevent malfunction of devices. They have maximum structural height of 1.8mm, said to be the industry's thinnest for single-side momentary slide switches, making these devices suitable for smaller and thinner equipment.

Simulation technologies for optimized coil spring configuration has made a 2.85mm stroke and 20,000 operation cycles possible, both of which are the industry's longest for switches of this type, SMK said, improving operability and reliability of equipment.

Samples of SMK's JSS series slide switches started shipping in September, with production expected to start in November. Sample price is $1.68 per unit.
