New SIM Card Reader with Tray Function
Munich - Yamaichi Electronics launches the FMS006-7000-0, a super low-profile SIM Card reader equipped with a tray.
With the FMS006-7000-0 Yamaichi enlarges its portfolio of high-quality SIM card readers. The special feature of this 6-pin reader is the tray function. It is particularly suitable for applications requiring a frequent change of the SIM card or the easy access to the card without opening of the enclosure. The SIM card is placed in the tray and then inserted with the tray into the card reader. Thus the SIM card is completely protected by the card reader housing.
The stop function of the tray is a major advantage. This means that it can be extracted only to a defined distance in order to allow the comfortable placing and withdrawal of the card. But if required the tray can also be removed completely from the reader through additional pulling force.
The insulation body of the card reader is made out of LCP, the metal cover and the additional reinforcements are out of SUS. For this reason the body has an excellent stability and the coplanarity is ensured.
Another outstanding feature are the gold-plated two-point contacts which ensure uninterrupted contact reliance during vibrations and shocks.
As the card reader has a super low-profile of only 1.61 mm, it is perfectly suited for applications with strongly reduced design space. The assembly is carried out on the bottom side of the PCB by means of SMT soldering (reversed type).
The SIM card reader is supplied on tape and reel and the tray in trays for fully automated pick and place assembly.
Yamaichi Electronics offer also a wide range of card connectors for all available Flash card and the SIM card standards, e.g. microSD, miniSD, MMCmicro, CompactFlash, xD Card etc. Several multicard versions are also available.
