GCT are delighted to be first to market with a Nano SIM connector. SIM8050 is a 6 contact push-pull Nano SIM connector with 1.45mm low profile height, tiny 12.3mm x 11.0mm outline and card stop feature. It’s suitable for 5,000 mating cycles with an operating temperature of -20°C to +80°C.
SIM8050 accepts the recently introduced new Nano SIM card format, Nano-SIM or 4FF (4th form factor) measures 12.3mm × 8.8mm × 0.67mm but maintains the existing 2FF and 3FF contact arrangements. Compared to Micro SIM a smaller area of isolating material remains around the Nano SIM contacts to avoid short circuits with the connector. The 0.67 mm thickness of the Nano-SIM card is approx. 15% percent less than Mini/Micro SIM card thickness of 0.76mm.
SIM8050 drawing, product specification and 3D model are online now. Samples available from your local GCT office now. Newark/Farnell and Future Electronics are holding stock.
Other Nano SIM connector types (such as mid PCB mount type) are in development, please contact GCT to discuss your design requirements.
