GCT Launch Improved Tiny Footprint Nano SIM Connector

Following customer feedback GCT is launching the re-engineered SIM8050 Nano SIM connector, which at .425” x .480” has the smallest footprint of any push-pull connector on the market.

The product has evolved to include a protective full metal shell and a height reduction to .053”.   Improved card insertion and extraction allows for a better user experience, while maintaining excellent vibration and shock characteristics.

GCT’s Nano SIM socket accepts the 4th form factor Nano SIM card format. This format measures .484” (L) x .346” (W) x .026” (T) and maintains existing SIM contact arrangements while reducing insulator size and thickness versus Micro SIM cards. Nano-SIM cards are approximately 15% percent slimmer than .029” thick Mini and Micro SIM cards.

How To Work Safely with High‑Voltage Test & Measurement Equipment

This white paper describes an alternative approach to calibrating high-voltage systems and provides meter and probe safety considerations and general guidance for safely operating high-voltage equipment.

SIM8050 is a push-pull connector with 6 contacts and .053” height above PCB.  Measuring just .425” x .480”, a full metal shell protects the Nano SIM card. The connector is suitable for 5,000 card insertion cycles, while a card stop function prevents mis-orientation during card insertion.  Plastic pegs and SMT hold-downs offer accurate PCB placement and PCB retention strength.

To speed up design downloadable drawings, 3D models and specification are available from the GCT website.
