Application Story:

Vertical Micro USB Receptacle - SMT short stakes

A high volume customer using USB3140requested shorter leads of GCT’s vertical Micro USB receptacle.  This connector has SMT leads with two thru hole shell stakes and a plastic supporting base for stability.

The customers are using a 1.00mm (.039″) thick printed circuit board with a paste in hole process, the existing shell stakes were protruding beneath the PCB, which was not acceptable to the customer.  The shell stake length options were 1.70mm and 2.30mm.

The change was handled by commission special tooling, we amended the shell tool and achieved a solution for the customer by using 0.7mm long shell stakes.  This was a perfect solution for the customer.

If you are a volume user (100K+ annually) and a GCT vertical micro USB receptacle requires a tweak to fit your design, contact GCT to discuss a custom solution.
