Custom PCB header with supporting feet

PCB header with supporting feet

We’ve been working with a customer who needed a customized stacking header with an extended height but tiny footprint to stack two PCB’s in parallel orientation. We offered an elevated header from our 1.00mm pitch board to board connector range, this looked like a perfect solution, but was prone to tipping during the solder process, a problem magnified by the tiny contact pitch.

To help balance the connector we molded a custom insulator and produced a PCB header with supporting feet.  The feet were designed to strategically to work around existing components on the PCB, which enabled the customer to avoid a PCB re-design.

Turnaround time on this design was seven to ten days.

Another problem solved with a clever solution from GCT’s custom connector team!  We can offer a wide range of custom PCB header solution, from simple modifications of existing parts all the way up to a bespoke PCB header solution.

If your PCB header requirement seems out of the ordinary speak to GCT, our low tooling charges and minimum order quantities might surprise you.
