- SIM (aka Mini SIM) (2FF)
- Micro SIM (3FF)
- Nano SIM (4FF)
- Push-Push -the SIM card is pushed into place and pushed again to release, ejecting by spring action. Push-Push is often used in consumer applications where users insert and eject SIM cards into a device.
- Push-Pull -the SIM card is pushed into place and held in place by force of contacts and pulled to remove. Push-Pull is the lowest cost type of SIM connector.
- Hinged - the connector opens to allow insertion of SIM card, hinged types are useful where a positive lock is required, especially in high vibration environments.
SIM5060 & 5055 hold the card in place in the hinged cover, for ease of use. To achieve an ultra-low profile, the SIM5051 does not hold the card in place.
- Dual - Allows two SIM cards to be plugged into one connector. This is a Push-Pull connector type.
6 contact versions are most popular as used in the majority of GSM or CDMA applications.
SIM contacts no. 4 and 8 are not generally used and defined by the ETSI spec as ‘reserved for future use’. Although 8 contact versions are used in MegaSIM applications.
SIM Card detection switch contacts are covered in a separate search.
Note – Card detection switches are some sometimes referred to as extra contacts. For example: 6+2 (6 x SIM contacts + 2 x switch contacts).
GCT do not classify card detection contacts as +2, but as ‘with’ or without’ card detection switch.
Push push SIM connector
GCT's push push SIM Connector range is suitble for Mini (2ff) and Micro (3ff) SIM cards.
Both connector varieties include a card detection function which electronically detects the presence of the SIM card, the switches are normally closed.
Push push SIM connector design is normally chosen in applications where the card is to be accessed via a panel cutout to the outside world, allowing end users to insert & extract SIM cards from outside the equipment. Examples of applications include smart energy metering hubs and USB data sticks.
