GCT Launch Improved Tiny Footprint Nano SIM Connector

Global Connector Technology, Inc
354 Merrimack Street, Building 1, Suite 262,
Lawrence, MA, 01843

Press release date: July 16, 2014

Global Connector Technology’s philosophy is one of constant improvement.  Following customer feedback GCT is launching the re-engineered SIM8050 Nano SIM connector, which at .425” x .480” has the smallest footprint of any push-pull connector on the market.

The product has evolved to include a protective full metal shell and a height reduction to .053”.   Improved card insertion and extraction allows for a better user experience, whilst maintaining excellent vibration and shock characteristics.

GCT’s Nano SIM socket accepts the 4th form factor Nano SIM card format. This format measures .484” (L) x .346” (W) x .026” (T) and maintains existing SIM contact arrangements while reducing insulator size and thickness versus Micro SIM cards. Nano-SIM cards are approximately 15% percent slimmer than .029” thick Mini and Micro SIM cards.

SIM8050 is a push-pull connector with 6 contacts and .053” height above PCB.  Measuring just .425” x .480”, a full metal shell protects the Nano SIM card. The connector is suitable for 5,000 card insertion cycles, while a card stop function prevents mis-orientation during card insertion.  Plastic pegs and SMT hold-downs offer accurate PCB placement and PCB retention strength.

To speed up design downloadable drawings, 3D models and specification are available from the GCT website. Call today to discuss design requirements, or visit to see why GCT should be the supplier of choice for SIM card connectors.
