Connector saves space in IEEE 1394 applications.

Press Release Summary:



Model KMFS-SMT-130 features low-profile design that lowers height of connector above surface of printed circuit board, allowing board to be mounted in thinner chassis or closer to other components. Space saving is over 50% compared to both through-hole-mount and surface-mount technologies. Available with gold contact plating, connector is suited for set-top boxes, PDAs, computer laptop and desktop systems, as well as peripherals such as printers, scanners, and CD burners.

Space Saving, Low Profile IEEE 1394 Connector


San Jose, CA Kycon introduces a new innovation in 1394 IEEE connector design with the release of the low-profile connector.

Available in single, the KMFS-SMT-130 provides dramatic space-saving benefits to designers of set-top boxes, PDA's, computer laptop and desktop systems, as well as peripherals such as printers, scanners, and CD burners. The low-profile design lowers the height of the connector above the surface of the Printed Circuit Board, allowing for the PCB to be mounted in a thinner chassis or closer to the other components or PCBs. The KMFS-SMT-130 enables above the board space savings of up to 55% compared to through-hole mount technology and 53% compared to surface mount. This provides equipment designers with new opportunities for achieving lower-profile system designs with height reductions up to 3mm when using this new Kycon component.

The KMFS-SMT-130 meets the standard IEEE 1394 specifications and is available in 30µ" gold contact plating and in tape and reel.
