Manufactured from precision-machined brass pins and receptacles and assembled in high temperature thermoplastic, Mill-Max SMT socket and pin header interconnects provide a convenient pluggable and reliable path between circuit boards.
Both the socket receptacle and the header pin feature a round stub-tail termination, providing the benefit of a reduced solder footprint inside the package outline. The .008 in floating pin design compensates for the peaks and valleys found in uneven solder paste application on the board surface, promoting good solder joints.
Pin-to-pin coplanarity can be held to .005 in for pin counts up to 20 positions (2 x 10). The sockets and headers are available in single row, 2-64 positions, or double row, 4-72 positions (2 x 2 - 2 x 36). The pin headers are precision-machined using a brass alloy known for its strength, conductive and thermal properties. The sockets are assembled with beryllium copper contact clips, which make a gas-tight connection to the mated header pins.
