At SPS IPC Drives 2017 we interviewed Robert Webber to find out more about the newly launched Sycamore Contact. The overview highlights the benefits of the reliable gold plated Surface Mount (SMT) Socket with three points of contact and how it can be used to replace existing loose two-piece through board sockets.
Our ultra-small, single piece stamped solution is designed for automated assembly with pick and place, using tape & reel packaging. Available in top and bottom entry versions, it is open-ended, so mating pin depth is not limited. The Sycamore Contact is ideal for use with gas sensors and other components vulnerable to heat and accepts pins either 0.8-1.3mm diameter, or 1.5-1.9mm diameter.
