Mill-Max Intros Precision-Machined SMT Sockets
Precision machined SMT sockets.
Oyster Bay, NY — The new 406 series SMT socket strip from Mill-Max is suitable for socketing leaded IC devices on SMT boards and for low profile board stacking applications. The connector is dual row, 0.100-in. (2.54mm) pitch, accepts standard IC leads and when used in combination with SMT or through-hole headers, provides a reliable interconnect solution. It offers a low-profile height of 0.146-in. (3.7mm) from the board surface and, when mated with a Mill-Max 429 Series SMT header, provides a board-to-board height of 0.300-in. (7.6mm). Secure mating is established and maintained by four-finger contacts inside each precision-machined receptacle body. The pin base of 406 Series sockets is only 0.029-in. (0.74mm) in diameter, allowing for a small PCB pad size and more space for routing traces. A co-planarity of 0.005-in. (0.13mm) is achieved for up to 20 positions, and standard designs are available in 4- to 20-position configurations. These sockets are manufactured with high-temperature insulators and are compatible with all SMT soldering techniques, including RoHS-compliant environments.

The connectors are packaged 335 pieces per 13-in. reel and fitted with a vacuum pick-up cap for enhanced accuracy and efficiency during pick-and-place assembly manufacturing.
