GCT launch improved tiny footprint Nano SIM connector

Global Connector Technology’s philosophy is one of constant improvement.  Following customer feedback we’re delighted to launch the re-engineered SIM8050 Nano SIM connector, which at 10.8mm x 12.20mm has the smallest footprint of any push-pull connector on the market. 

The product has evolved to include a protective full metal shell and a height reduction to 1.35mm.   Improved card insertion and extraction allows for a better user experience, whilst maintaining excellent vibration and shock characteristics. 

GCT’s Nano SIM socket accepts the 4th form factor Nano SIM card format. This format measures 12.3mm (L) x 8.8mm (W) x 0.67mm (T) and maintains existing SIM contact arrangements while reducing insulator size and thickness versus Micro SIM cards. Nano-SIM cards are approximately 15% percent slimmer than 0.76mm thick Mini and Micro SIM cards.

SIM8050 is a push-pull connector with 6 contacts and 1.35mm height above the PCB.  Measuring just 10.8mm x 11.0mm, a full metal shell protects the Nano SIM card. The connector is suitable for 5,000 card insertion cycles, while a card stop function prevents mis-orientation during card insertion.  Plastic pegs and SMT hold-downs offer accurate PCB placement and PCB retention strength.

To speed up design downloadable drawings, 3D models and specification are available from the GCT website.
