Press Release Summary:
Multi-card or combination card connector, FRS016T-2000-0, offers 2 slots, offset by 90Â° and stacked in one casing, for microSD flash memory cards as well as SIM chip cards. While SIM card is operated manually, microSD card is operated via push/push mechanism. Form factor, with installation height of 2.85 mm, is suited for space-restricted applications. RoHS-compliant solution is delivered as tape-on-reel for automated SMT assembly and mounts on top of PCB.
Original Press Release:
Yamaichi 2-in-1 Multi-Card Connector for µSD and SIM
June 2008-Yamaichi Electronics offers a new multi-card or combination card connector. The FRS016T-2000-0 offers two slots offset by 90° and stacked in one casing for microSD flash memory cards, as well as SIM chip cards. The SIM card is operated manually, and the microSD card is operated via a convenient push/push mechanism.
The small form factor, with an installation height of 2.85mm, makes the card connector ideal for the tightest spaces in mobile phones and other end devices. This combination is frequently used for SIM module and microSD card applications. As an individual component for these two card types, the FRS016T-2000-0 meets the requirement the best way. At the same time, it reduces the development and space requirement for many designs.
Card slots, with a 90° offset stacked above each other, allow for a flexible design-in where the SIM card is inserted into the internal connector in the casing below the battery pack. The microSD card slot, however, is accessed on the casing exterior. This design complies with the input/output connector.
The electromechanical component, FRS016T-2000-0, is RoHS-compliant and is delivered as tape-on-reel for automated SMT assembly. It is mounted on the top side of the circuit board.
