Hinged micro SIM connector

Louise Smyth

GCT expands its SIM connector range with the all new SIM7200. It’s the first hinged micro SIM to feature in the GCT line-up.

The active lock found on the SIM7200 gives it superior shock and vibration resistance versus other SIM connector styles and has been through rigorous testing to EIA industry standards.  This makes it very useful for industrial and harsh environment applications where a consistent, robust connection is paramount.

It also gives customers greater flexibility in terms of positioning and placement.  Other SIM connector types are typically restricted to being designed on the edges of equipment but hinged variants can be positioned almost anywhere.

The SIM7200 is now available with 6 contacts and a 1.75mm profile above the PCB.
