Components Corporation's Flat Wireform Jumpers Now Meet RoHS Standards
Ultra-Low Profile Devices Are Engineered For Employment on Next-Generation, Multi-Function PCBs Where Board Space is Limited
Denville, NJ, May 23, 2006...Components Corporation, a world leader in the design and manufacture of printed circuit board hardware technology, today announced the availability of the 100% RoHS-compliant FJ Series of ultra-low profile jumpers. Specifically developed to ensure the reliability, functionality and integrity of interconnect traces on multi-function printed circuit boards, the SMT jumpers are flat wireforms featuring a minimal profile. The devices require no insulation and are offered in standard EIA case sizes 0805 and 1206 to provide the utmost in board space conservation, together with manufacturing and applied cost efficiencies. Due to their unique design, Component Corporation's FJs are ideal alternatives to zero-ohm resistors. Boasting excellent stability and cleaning properties, the jumpers' construction further supports the most prevalent high-volume placement equipment and solder reflow processes.
The FJ Series may be confidently specified for use in a wide range of mission-critical consumer, medical, and aerospace applications where fabricators of SMT printed circuit boards expect to quickly modify or activate boards' capabilities by adding or eliminating jumpers during assembly. Moreover, as the easy-to-place parts are resistant to moisture and varied contaminants that can degrade the integrity of boards' functions, they are well suited for harsh environment applications.
Manufactured utilizing Components Corporation's proprietary technology to ensure the highest standards in performance, the devices are formed of #C110 copper flat wire contact material and a 100% matte tin (0.0001 min.) finish over nickel (0.00005) underplate. They additionally feature an operating temperature range of -55 to +105 degrees C and current rating of 2A. The FJ Series is provided on 8 mm wide, 4 mm pitch, conductive polycarbonate tape that meets ANSI/EIA-481 standards, and are supplies on 7" (1,000 pieces) tape and reel. To learn more about the FJ Series, visit componentscorp.com/details/fj0805.html. Custom jumpers are available by contacting the company.
Pricing for Components Corporation's FJ 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.
