Dual SIM connector saves PCB real estate

Increasingly customers in all markets are working to reduce the physical size of their products. In the Automotive track and trace market this is especially relevant when the tracking device is the first thing a thief would like to remove. Making tracking devices smaller enables them to be hidden more easily within the body of the car.

Often tracking units require two SIM cards to give mobile network redundancy, should one network have poor signal coverage another network picks up the tracking duties. GCT’s dual SIM connector SIM6050 enables mechanical engineers to place two SIM cards one on top of the other reducing the PCB space needed by 50%.  This is a popular product, used widely within the tracking industry.
