ASM01, a single SMD connector or miniature board-to-board connector

ASM01, a single SMD connector or miniature board-to-board connector

Ever had the experience of designing a miniature electronic application with more than one PCB? For example a LED light? Then you must have had a challenge in connecting these PCBs in this compact casing to another! And... are you happy with the chosen board-to-board connection?

A revolution in the world of PCB connections
Trying to make the application more compact, easy to assemble and robust, think about using the ASM contact of METZ Connect. It’s a miniature SMD connector of only 1,7mm thick! Together with an SMD or THT header, you get the smallest board-to-board connection available in the market today. You’re able to produce the application on one SMT solder process, a fully automatic assembly, saving you a lot of manual labour.

Solderless termination
The ASM01 spring contact is a single pole, vibration resistant SMD which allows for a solderless termination. The construction is origianally being designed for the connection of pinned components and individual solid wires. Version "Y" accommodates 18 - 16 AWG, while version "W" handles the thinner gauges of 26 - 18 AWG. Stranded wires with ferrules can also be used. The ASM01 allows leaded components to effectively become SMT compatible; therefore eliminating the need to wavesolder them. The ASM01 can withstand soldering temperatures of 290°C for 90 seconds, integrating into most any reflow solder process with ease. Furthermore, the component can be soldered either on the component or the soldering side for added flexibility. Covering only 3.5mm2, the ASM01Y is a compact, fast, and economical connector solution.
