C&K Develops Compact, Flexible, 2-Position Slide Switches for Mobile Communication Devices
Miniature slide switches available with multiple actuation options, termination configurations...
NEWTON, MA (July 14, 2009) - C&K Components, a leading international supplier of tact switches, toggle, rocker and pushbutton switches, and smart card interconnect devices, has developed a series of compact two-position slide switches. Designated the OS Series, the RoHS-compliant miniature slide switches feature a flexible design for easy integration into standard and custom mobile communication devices and accessories, as well as test and measurement equipment, computer peripherals and network products.
"These slide switches were originally developed for a leading manufacturer of smart phones who required a two-output slide switch that utilized very little space on the PC board to conform to strict real estate constraints," said Vinny Acampora, product manager for C&K Components. "The OS Series switches are a particularly ideal solution in that they are capable of 'piggy backing' on top of a micro-USB connector, and also feature multiple actuator options and termination configurations to meet any application-specific needs."
The OS Series slide switches feature shorting or non-shorting contacts with gold or silver contact plating. Maximum contact resistance is 20mW, with a minimum insulation resistance of 100mW at 500VDC. Dielectric strength is 500VAC for 1 minute, and operating temperature ranges from -10ºC to +70ºC. Mechanical and electrical life for the OS Series slide switches is to 10,000 cycles. The switches are available in bulk packaging.
Typical pricing for the OS Series slide switches is approximately $0.75 in quantities of more than 1,000 pieces. Lead time is from 6 to 8 weeks.
