GCT launches improved tiny footprint Nano SIM connector

Constant improvement is at the heart of Global Connector Technology’s business philosophy and so in response to customer feedback the company has launched the re-engineered SIM8050 Nano SIM connector, which at 10.8mm x 12.20mm has the smallest footprint of any push-pull connector currently 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.
