Arlington Heights, IL â€šÃ¢â‚¬â€œ Measuring just 0.4mm, the contact pitch of Yokowoâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s vertical cable connector is the smallest in the industry. The pitch and a low profile of 1.5 mm (when mounted) save space and allow for high-density mounting. In addition, vertically mated, top-loaded connectors eliminate the need for additional space to insert the plug. An extremely small plug dimension of 1.2 x 2mm enables the connector to run through a 3mm diameter hinge hole.
Two types of plugs are offered from Yokowo â€šÃ¢â‚¬â€œ an FPC Type and a Wire Type. The receptacle is compatible with both. A double-sided FPC Type is available for high-speed signal transmission and to prevent EMI (electromagnetic interference). To further control EMI waves, A GND shield connection for the FPC Type is possible without soldering. The Wire Type allows for a solderless connection with a thin cable of AWG #38 to #36 (0.24 diameter including the coating).
The unique two-point contact structure of Yokowoâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s connector improves resistance to vibration and the number of times mating can be repeated, while securing a 0.6mm-long effective joint area.
