The BM20 connector range is one of the smallest connectors in its class. The 40 position (receptacle) version has a length of only 10.48mm and a depth of only 2.3mm. The ultra low parallel stack height is only 0.8mm.
Despite the compact dimensions, performance is not compromised and highly reliable mechanical connection is guaranteed.
This is achieved by the utilisation of special unique two point contacts. Dimples on the contacts allow for a positive click and a tactile
sensation to confirm correct and complete mating.
In addition, the dimples of the header contacts absorbs shock, reducing damage from drop impact. When the connector is in the mated position the contacts are fully enclosed in the housing to protect against solder waste and flux.
The termination area of the contact features a nickel barrier area to prevent solder wicking.
Guide ribs are incorporated into the housing body allowing a wide self alignment range of 0.3mm in X or Y direction permitting smoother mating operation.
At each corner of the connector, metal fittings are present to increase the retention force of the connector to the board and protect the contacts from mechanical stress.
