GCT’s Nano connector range cover a variety of styles to suit your design requirements. With popular connector styles such as push-pull and hinged types, all GCT Nano SIM connectors have 6 contacts with profiles consisting of either 1.35mm or 1.43mm.
There are full metal shell versions that provide heat and EMI resistance, along with card detection variants with innovative split contact design to confirm if a SIM card is present. In addition, all push-pull GCT Nano SIM connectors feature a card stop function to ensure the SIM card is inserted in the correct orientation.
For more price sensitive designs where insertions cycles are not a key requirement, GCT have Nano SIM connectors with 3µ” gold plated contacts suitable for 1,500 card insertions cycles. Those with higher insertion cycle applications have 15µ” gold versions which are suitable for 5,000 card insertion cycles.
PCB locating pegs and SMT solder tabs provide extra printed circuit board retention.
Nano SIM connectors accept the Nano SIM card format, 4FF (4th form factor) cards measure 12.3mm x 8.8mm x 0.67mm, Nano SIM cards maintains existing standard SIM contact arrangements while reducing the card insulator size. Compared to Micro SIM a smaller area of isolating material remains around the contacts to avoid short circuits.
At 0.67 mm thickness Nano-SIM cards are approximately 15% percent slimmer than Mini/Micro SIM cards at 0.76mm thickness.
