Components Corporation's Ultra-Low Profile SMT Jumper Series Now RoHS-Compliant

Devices are Offered in Standard Industry Footprints Of 0805 and 1206, and Support High-Volume Placement

Denville, NJ, January 3, 2006...Announced today by Components Corporation, a world leader in the design and manufacture of circuit board hardware technology, is the availability of the 100% RoHS-compliant SJ Series of ultra-low profile jumpers. Precisely engineered to safely and reliably interconnect traces on densely populated PC boards, Components Corporation's jumpers address fabricators' of SMT printed circuit boards ever-increasing demands to maximize board real estate, optimize manufacturing efficiencies, and speed time-to-market. The devices require no costly and time-consuming insulation, and are today's preferred choice to expensive wire bonding solutions. Comprised of parts in standard EIA case sizes 0805 and 1206, the Series uniquely boasts an ultra-low profile of 0.050" while allowing sufficient clearance for circuit paths. Moreover, it provides excellent solderability and cleaning properties to support high-volume placement equipment and solder reflow processes.

Ideal for employment on multi-function PCBs, assemblers can easily and rapidly modify or activate boards' features by adding or removing jumpers. The SJ Series is especially well suited for use in high-reliability and/or harsh environment applications as parts are resistant to moisture and other contaminants that can degrade the integrity of the boards' functions. They are most frequently used in a wide range of consumer, medical, and aerospace applications.

Constructed of #C110 copper flat wire, and a 100% matte tin (0.0001 min.) over nickel (0.0001 min.) underplate, the RoHS-compliant Series is a result of Components Corporation's proprietary technology developed to ensure the utmost in strength, reliability, and stability when mounted. These SMT devices feature a current rating of 2A, and an operating temperature range of -55 to +125 degrees C. Parts are provided on 8 mm wide, 4 mm pitch, conductive polycarbonate tape that meets ANSI/EIA-481 standards. They are supplied on 7" (1000 pieces) tape and reel. For more detailed specifications, visit Custom jumpers are available by contacting the company.

Pricing for Components Corporation's SJ Series of ultra-low profile, RoHS-compliant jumpers is $0.07 each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is from stock to 4 weeks. Samples are available upon request.
