JAE has launched the WP6C series of low profile stacking type board-to-board connectors that have 0.4mm pitch spacing. The connectors have a shield structure that reduces noise during mating. The contact structures ensure high wear resistance and contact reliability. These components come with secure hold-downs that prevent insulator breakage and peeling.
An operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C is supported. They are lead-free and come with a nickel barrier on contact that prevents solder wicking. The components have been designed for use in mobile phones, laptops and other portable devices that require high-density mounting.
