Micro-SIM Card Reader Offers Convenient Card Handling
Munich, - Yamaichi Electronics is launching the FUS006-8500-0, the first card reader for micro-SIM cards (3FF).
With the FUS006-8500-0, Yamaichi is opening up a new portfolio of high-quality card readers in the FUS series, specially developed for micro-SIM (3FF). 3FF is the Third Form Factor card, a smaller version of the current SIM card. The current SIM card is 25mm x 15mm in size. In the micro-SIM, the outer lengths are only 15mm x 12mm.
The miniaturisation of the card was also consistently continued for the card reader, while still placing value on many technical features.
The FUS006-8500-0 card reader is a top-mount variant with a very flat construction, only 1.34mm high. Its outer dimensions are 16 x 14mm. It has 6 gold-plated contacts that, like many other card readers from Yamaichi, have a 2-point contact shape. This shape is designed in such a way that it maintains reliable contact even when subjected to vibrations and shock.
The card reader also has a high degree of security against the incorrect insertion of the card. A special design feature automatically stops the card when it is inserted in the wrong direction.
The micro-SIM is removed using a small clip. A brief pull sets a mechanism in motion that pushes the card a certain distance out of the slot, making its removal easy.
The insulating body of the card reader is made of LCP, while the metal cover is made of SUS. Four ground connections provide outstanding EMI protection.
The unit is mounted with SMT soldering on the top of the PCB (top-mount type). The card reader is delivered packaged on tape reel belts.
Yamaichi Electronics offers many other card connectors for all available Flash and SIM card types in different form factors such as microSD, miniSD, RS-MMC, MMCmicro, CompactFlash, xD Card, multicard versions, etc.
