Micro-SIM Card Sockets, Push-Pull Style | Molex

Available with or without detect switch, Molex's micro-SIM card sockets offer maximum PCB and vertical space-savings with added anti-shorting and polarised card-insertion features for ultra-slim handheld devices.

Measuring 12 mm x 15 mm, the Molex micro-SIM push-pull card is 52 percent smaller than its predecessor Mini-SIM card (15 mm x 25 mm).  Available in 1.35, 1.40 and 1.45 mm heights, the push-pull style micro-SIM sockets offer the same space savings and higher contact forces, with a wide finger area on the shell for easy insertion and withdrawal of a micro-SIM card.  Currently the only micro-SIM tray version on the market that does not require a tool for card extraction, the user-friendly Molex micro-SIM tray style socket features smooth extraction and secure locking to prevent card fly-out.  

The three new Molex micro-SIM socket styles feature a smaller footprint, lower profile height, and high contact normal-force (0.30 N) and reliability.  Advanced polarization features help prevent against improper card insertion.   Available in standard 6-circuit and optional 8-circuit styles, all versions of the halogen and lead-free micro-SIM card sockets are ELV and RoHS certified.

Features & Benefits:

  • Extremely small connector footprint provides superb PCB real-estate savings especially for tight packaging applications
  • Lowest profile connector height of 1.35mm offers maximum vertical space saving for ultra-slim handheld devices
  • Dual (90°) angular card-polarization features on metal shell prevent insertion and over-insertion of wrongly oriented micro-SIM card
  • Integral metal-shell spring tab ensures high normal force (0.30N) and good electrical contact with inserted micro-SIM card
  • Anti-short feature with raised housing walls of the socket insulates any exposed edge of (improperly pared) SIM card contact pads from shorting with the surrounding shell
  • Soldering features on metal shell provide robust PCB hold-down of both 6- and 8-circuit sockets

Applications:

  • Mobile phones
  • Ultra-slim smart phones
  • Tablet PCs
  • GSM/UMTS modems
  • PC cards
  • Wireless LAN cards
