Side Protected Pre-loaded Scalable Spring Fingers


TE Connectivity offers spring fingers used in small printed circuit board applications

TE Connectivity and Digi-Key introduce a line of scalable spring finger products. Spring fingers (also known as shield fingers, grounding springs or universal ground contacts) are single-contact, surface-mountable, internal connectors used in almost every small printed circuit board application. They provide an electrical connection and grounding from EMI noise and static between a PCB and other electronic components such as a secondary PCB, shield cans, antenna, or speaker. This line of products has an enhanced design of the sidewalls to help support operator placement.

Features
  • Support operator placement with an enhanced sidewall design
  • Enable easy design changes with a common footprint used across the family
  • Offer design versatility with a broad range of available heights
  • Allow an easy and inexpensive method for connecting multiple PCBs
  • Prevent EMI noise and static for grounding between device and PCB
