Molex Unveils New SlimStack™ SSB6 SMT Microminiature Board-to-Board Connectors

Compact size offers maximum space savings in mobile devices, while innovative mating alignment ensures easy and secure contact

LISLE, IL – August 5, 2014 – Molex Incorporated announces the launch of its new SlimStack™ SSB6 SMT microminiature board-to-board connectors. With an ultra-low profile (0.35 mm pitch) and compact size (0.60 mm height x 2.00 mm width, when mated), SlimStack SSB6 connectors are ideal for saving space in the compact packaging of smartphones and other portable mobile devices, as well as a wide range of surgical, therapeutic and monitoring medical devices.

“These innovative features address many of the challenges operators face in packaging small, portable electronic devices,” notes Noboru Ando, global product marketing director, Molex. “For manufacturers of smartphones, tablet PCs, portable audio players, personal navigation tools and compact medical electronics, Molex gives painstaking attention to detail in the design and engineering of its microminiature products, which typically translates into more reliable, higher performance products.”

The new SlimStack SSB6 connectors (plug and receptacle) incorporate several innovative design features that help to ensure high connector performance and reliability, even when mobile devices are dropped or subjected to shock or vibration. Some key features include:

  • Wide mating-alignment housing lead-in areas to facilitate fast, easy alignment and mating without risking connector damage due to forced mating.

  • A strong audible/tactile click to provide extra assurance of successful mating.

  • Dual-contact design to provide secure electrical and mechanical contact and prevent open contacts.

  • Wipe length of 0.13 mm to help remove dust and debris, providing further contact assurance.

  • Housing canopy cover to provide an anti-zippering barrier that prevents contact pullout from angled unmating.

  • Wide vacuum pick-and-place area to accommodates automatic board placement, even with narrow width.

Ando adds: “In the future, Molex will continue to expand its SlimStack SSB series with additional versions that include different stack heights, a shielded version for EMI protection, and a version featuring a power nail ‘armor’ feature.”
