As board-to-board connectors move below 0.40mm pitch, aligning them for mating can become very difficult for operators. This can seriously slow down the assembly process and cause damage to connectors from forced mating. The 0.35mm pitch SlimStack SSB6 connectors include a wide mating-alignment housing lead-in area that helps operators easily guide connectors properly together.
Another key concern for micro board-to-board connectors is making sure contact is maintained even if mobile devices are subject to shock or vibration. The dual-contact design on the SlimStack SSB6 connectors provides secure electrical and mechanical reliability even when subjected to dropping or repeated mating/unmating, along with a strong tactile click feeling for added mating assurance.
