The BM10 series is one of the world’s smallest connectors in its class. The 40 position version has a length of only 10.4mm and a depth of only 2.98mm when mated. Two ultra low parallel stack heights are
available within the range which are 0.6mm or 0.8mm.
Despite its 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 and a long
effective mating length of 0.2mm (stack height 0.6mm) or 0.1mm (stack height 0.6mm). 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.
