AIC_SMT_Perimeter_ConnectorA new line of customized surface mount connectors from Advanced Interconnections reduces board space by utilizing the perimeter of circular and other odd-shaped PC boards. To support prototypes and small volume runs, Advanced can provide an affordable design and rough sample for electrical and mechanical testing, typically in less than 5 days. SMT Perimeter Connectors are created from easily customized FR-4 insulators on in-house driller/routing machines and incorporate high quality screw-machined, solder ball terminals (available down to 0.50mm pitch) on both the male header and the mating female connector (socket). Vertical integration including precision CNC machining and hundreds of existing screw-machined terminal designs eliminate the need for expensive tooling and set-up costs such as stamping dies making customized solutions affordable, even in low volumes as projects ramp-up.

The semi-circle design maximizes space when stacking circular printed circuit boards and features an integrated keying/polarization feature. The light-weight, low profile FR-4 insulator can be easily transitioned to a molded design to further reduce costs in production volumes. Typical applications include military and medical equipment where mission-critical reliability and the ability to provide custom designs in low volumes are required.
