Mill-Max is excited to
announce the release of our lowest profile target connectors with an above
board height of only .087” (2,21mm). 
Target connectors are used in place of SMT pads on a PCB as the mating
surface for spring-loaded pins.  They
provide increased durability and are useful in achieving specific distances
between boards.  

To augment our existing .100”
(2,54mm) grid target connector lineup we are introducing four new, low profile
products.  These connectors are all
surface mount, available in single or double row packages and are offered with
flat or concave target faces.  Concave
face targets provide additional surface area for mating and can aid in
centering/alignment of components and/or boards fitted with spring-loaded
connectors.  Precision-machined pins with
an overall length tolerance of +/- .0015” (+/-.0381mm) help to achieve a
co-planarity of .005” (,13mm) or better for connectors up to 1” (25,4mm) long.  Advanced machining techniques are used to ensure
no burr protrusion on either the target face or the surface mount termination
end.

Here is the part number
breakdown for these new connectors:

 

Combining target connectors
with spring-loaded connectors on opposing boards can be a simple and convenient
solution for making connections between stacked boards or docking stations and
devices.  These new connectors are
ideally suited for low profile applications where multiple connections are
required.  To achieve an ultra-low
profile mated pair using these target connectors, the Mill-Max series 815 and
817 (single and double row respectively) are the ideal choice.  The 815/817 connectors, compressed to ½
stroke and used in combination with these new low profile target connectors,
provide a board to board spacing of just .175” (4,45mm).

All the pins are
precision-machined and gold-plated for environmental protection, durability and
good conductivity.  The connector
insulators are molded from high temperature plastic suitable for most soldering
process including RoHS environments.  All
of these products are RoHS compliant.
