5802 board-to-board connectors

AVX Corp. has launched the 5802 series, claimed to be the smallest 0.4mm pitch board-to-board connector series. The low-profile connectors feature an ultraslim form factor of 0.8mm stacking height and 3.2mm width, including tails. The 10- to 60-position connector family has an innovative design that does not compromise reliability or performance.

The area beneath the 5802 series connector is fully insulated, allowing designers to run tracks beneath the device for a more flexible board layout. To ensure low insertion force while maintaining high retention and separation force, the connector contact employs a twin rib structure. The structure also ensures that contacts are wiped clean from contaminants, such as dust and flux, during every mating cycle.

"Our 5802 low-profile board-to-board connector series is ideal for portable devices due to its unique design that combines ultrasmall size with high-reliability," said Mark Jarman, KEC product manager at AVX. "The space-saving design allows engineers to be flexible in their design without sacrificing performance or ruggedness that end consumers demand."

Providing an audible and tactile "click" mating, the plugs are shaped by insert moldings and enclosed metal fittings on the receptacles to improve breaking strength against any drop impact. A nickel barrier and solder-on receptacle contacts prevent solder wicking, while pinched-type dual contacts further enhance contact reliability.

Other specifications include 0.3A rated contact current, 50V rated contact voltage, gold plated beryllium copper contacts, UL94V-0 heat-resistant insulator material, and -40C to 85C operating temperature.

The AVX 5802 series connectors are designed for use as a low profile and space efficient board-to-board connector that is required for internal wiring of mobile devices, such as cellphones, MP3 players, digital still and video cameras, PDAs and game players. The connectors are also suitable for connecting LCDs in camera modules, CMOS/CCD image pickup devices, and other space-sensitive board applications.

Pricing typically starts at $0.03 per position in low volumes with a lead time of eight to 12 weeks.
