Profile height is reduced to 1.35mm (.053″). SIM8050 also offers the smallest SMT footprint size of any Nano SIM connector on the market at: 10.8mm x 12.20mm (.425” x .480”).
SIM8050 now includes a protective full metal shell offering better protection from heat damage to the SIM card. Improved card insertion and extraction allows for a better user experience, whilst maintaining excellent vibration and shock characteristics.
The connector is available as 6 contact push-pull type, cards are inserted and removed by hand. It’s suitable for 5,000 card insertion cycles and a card stop function allows the Nano SIM card to by plugged in one orientation only.
There are tray type Nano SIM connectors on the market, formed from a basic contact block and metal shells, which must be purchased separately. In addition to multiple reflow processes the customer must source a plastic tray to hold the SIM card in place, not a problem if you’re producing millions of handset or tablet units, more of an issue for medium volume requirements.
The socket accepts the 4th form factor Nano SIM card format. This format measures 12.3mm Length x 8.8mm Width x 0.67mm Thickness and maintains existing SIM contact arrangements.
The Nano SIM card reduces insulator length from 15mm, width from 12mm vs Micro SIM card insulators. Card thickness is reduced from 0.76mm, which is the standard on Mini and Micro SIM cards.
