C&K Components has developed a family of miniature slide switches designed specifically for applications where height or surface area is restricted. Including the AYZ, JS, JSM and PCM Series devices, the ultralow profile slide switches are suitable for momentary or momentary and latched operation.

"The miniature slide switches are offered with right-angle surface-mounting and actuation styles, allowing for some of the devices to sit less than 0.7mm high," said Vinny Acampora, worldwide product manager for C&K Components. "The extended range of features including mounting options, contact reliability and configurations make the slide switches suitable for applications such as mobile telecommunications, remote control equipment, computer peripherals, instrumentation, and test and measurement equipment."

The miniature 1.5mm high AYZ Series slide switches can be right-angle and surface mounted. The switches are available with one or two poles, feature double- and triple-throw action, and offset or side actuation. Contact resistance is less than 80m?, with life cycles to 10,000 operations.

The sub-miniature JS Series slide switches feature a profile down to 0.7mm, positive detents, high contact reliability and right or center actuation, and can be surface or through-hole mounted. Available

in SPDT, DPDT and DP3T models, the switches have IR reflows to 260 solder profile, contact rating of 6Vdc at 3A and life cycles to 5,000 operations.

Similar to the JS Series slide switches, the JSM Series switches also feature positive detents, IR reflow to 260 solder profile, and can be surface or through-hole mounted. The JSM switches are offered in SPDT, SP3T models and feature maintained and momentary functions. Contact rating is 4Vdc at 0.3A,

with lifespan to 10,000 cycles.

The PCM Series ultra miniature surface mount slide switches are available in SPDT and SP3T models. Contact rating is 6VDC at 0.3A, with a mechanical life to 50,000 cycles. The switches are available

in tape and reel packaging.

Pricing for the JSM Series slide switches ranges from 60 cents to 70 cents. The switches are offered in 1,800-piece reels.
