Push-Pull SIM Connectors for Mini, Micro and Nano SIM cards. Connectors are available with 6 or 8 pins in surface mount with profiles between 1.55mm – 3.44mm (.061" - .135"). SIM card detection switch to electronically detect card presence is available on some connector types.
There are numerous connector styles, from the most economical open frame CH03-AA, to versions with part or full metal shell to protect cards from warping due to heat. Plastic locating posts to aid PCB placement are optional, packaging varies depending on type.
Card insertion cycles are either 5,000 or 10,000 depending on type.
Push-Pull type works by pushing the SIM card into place, the SIM is held in place by the force of the contacts which hold the card in place against the plastic frame or metal shell, the card is removed by pulling by hand.
This connector type is an economical option and often used in fit and forget solutions where the card is rarely (or never) plugged and unplugged.
