Mill-Max Mfg. Corp. announces the availability of its new fine pitch SMT gull wing connector series. The series comprises the 860-10-0XX-30-002000 (1mm gull wing SMT header available in 3 - 26 positions) and the 861-13-0XX-30-002000 (1mm gull wing SMT socket available in 3 - 26 positions).

With a board-to-board stack height measuring less than 0.3 in. (7.62mm), the Mill-Max gull wing series is ideal for tight, compact spaces in which a surface mount, precision-machined connector is the preferred design choice. In addition, the diameter of the leads - 0.014 in. (0.36mm) for the socket, 0.015 in. (0.38mm) for the header - leaves a tiny footprint, saving valuable PCB space.

Sockets feature gold-plated shells and contacts, and headers gold-plated pins, thus ensuring optimum conductivity and superior wear resistance. The gull wing design allows for more effective and efficient inspection of the solder joints.

Additional features of the Mill-Max fine pitch SMT gull wing connector series:

  • RoHS compliant
  • Equipped with high temperature insulators and suitable for RoHS soldering processes
  • Socket end uses a low-insertion force contact inside receptacles
  • Gas tight connection when mated
  • Coplanarity of 0.005 in. (0.13mm)

All Mill-Max pin headers and receptacle sockets feature high-speed, screw-machined pins and receptacles manufactured to precision tolerances. Inside each 861 series receptacle is a precision stamped Beryllium Copper Mill-Max #04 3-finger contact clip with a pin acceptance range of 0.008-0.013 in. (0.2mm - 0.33mm) diameter and a current rating of 2 A.
