ITT Interconnect Solutions is rolling out a connector that improves signal transmission and reception in wireless handheld devices.

Marketed under the brand name, The Perfect Wireless Interconnect, ITT Interconnect Solutions' latest connector features a 300k psi domed interconnect contact with a minimum force of 0.5N and deflection of 0.6mm, holding true signal integrity through the antenna and experiencing no field failures.

The connector fits in extremely limited board space. It has a reduced length to fit tight spacing yet withstands manufacturing stresses and remains stable on the board, according to ITT.

Available in beryllium copper (BeCu) or titanium copper (TiCu), the Perfect Wireless Interconnect also features side-walls to provide beam protection and a solder well to prevent wicking.

The connector is specified for use as a SIM, speaker/vibrator, microphone, battery or board-to-board contact in a large number of handheld wireless applications, including handsets, smart phones, laptop computers, memory sticks, CT scanning equipment, key fobs and GPS units.

Price ranges from $0.075 to $0.115 each. Lead time is from six to eight weeks.
