Molex, Inc. expanded its SlimStack product line to include J-Lead SMT connectors. These board-to-board connectors feature a J-shaped SMT tail that provides 35 percent PCB width space savings versus standard gull-wing style tails. The connectors are manufactured in stack heights of 0.90 mm, 1.30 mm, 1.50 mm and 1.70 mm. Design flexibility makes the connectors suitable in applications where a thin design is necessary including cell phones, digital video and still cameras, MP3 players, barcode scanners and handheld GPS systems, as well as portable medical, military and printing devices. Other features include a bottom mold design that allows circuits to be traced on the underside of the connector. Long wipe lengths and gold-plated contacts provide contact reliability and signal integrity.
