 Re-Engineered SIM8050 Nano SIM Connector

Re-Engineered SIM8050 Nano SIM Connector

Following customer feedback,  Global Connector Technology is launching the re-engineered SIM8050 Nano SIM connector, which at 0.425 in. x 0.480 in.  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 in..   Improved card insertion and extraction allows for a better user experience, whilst maintaining excellent vibration and shock characteristics.

GCT's Nano SIM socket accepts the 4th form factor Nano SIM card format. This format measures 0.484 in. (L) x 0.346 in. (W) x .026 in, (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 0.029 in. thick Mini and Micro SIM cards.

SIM8050 is a push-pull connector with six contacts and 0.053 in. height above PCB.  Measuring just 0.425 in. x 0.480 in. 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.
