TE Connectivity (TE) introduced a new line of scalable spring finger products.Spring fingers (also known as shield fingers, grounding springs or universal ground contacts) are used in almost every small printed circuit board application. A spring finger is a single contact, surface mountable, internal connector. It provides and electrical connection and grounding from EMI noise and static between a PCB and other electronic components, such as a secondary PCB, shield cam, antenna, or speaker.
The Scalable Spring Fingers provide electrical connection and grounding from EMI noise and static between a PCB and other electronic components such as secondary PCB, shield can, antenna, or speaker. The enhanced design of the sidewalls help support operator placement and is an easy/inexpensive method for connecting multiple PCBs.
A broad range of heights offers design versatility and will accommodate soldering processes using the standard pick-an-place equipment.
