SlimStack™ ST7 0.35mm Pitch SMT Board-to-Board Connectors
Ideal for the thinnest mobile devices, the SlimStack ST7 0.35mm pitch board-to-board connector system offers the most space savings of any similar pitch system along with robust features that provide secure mating retention, terminal protection and reliable electrical contact.
The Molex ST7 series offers a narrow width, short length and low profile for ultimate space savings. This space savings becomes more important as the circuit size increases for mobile applications such as thin smartphones.
The SlimStack ST7 system also incorporates a variety of robust mechanical and electrical features to complement its space savings. These include a double friction lock system that helps ensure secure mating retention, which often becomes more of an issue as pitch and height shrink.
Other unique features include a sharp-edge terminal design that removes flux while locking into place and a tactile click feeling that helps assure operators of complete mating. The system also includes nickel-barrier plating to avoid the risk of flux wicking. The ST7 system will initially be offered in a 10-circuit version, with options of up to 40 circuits added later.
