Peel-A-Way® Removable Terminal Carriers:
High in Flexibility and Low in Profile
West Warwick, R.I., November 9, 2009 – For applications that require low profile and customizable PCB configurations, Peel-A-Way® Removable Terminal Carriers are the perfect solution for device socketing and board-to-board interconnect. Compared to traditional molded insulators, the ultra-thin, .005” (0.13mm) polyimide film carrier, employing near flush solder tail terminals (Type -210), reduces component height above the PC board by as much as 80%, down to .015” (0.38mm). For board-to-board applications, standard spacing options range from .045” (1.14mm) to .250” (6.35mm) with custom options available to suit virtually any application.
In-house carrier stamping and precision drilling enable fast turn-around on customized configurations including prototypes. Unique designs include zig zag, off pitch, special radius, circular, and patterns with multiple terminal/pin styles or cut-outs. Thousands of screw-machined socket and adapter terminals to choose from include tin/lead or lead-free plating as well as optional solder performs for mixed SMT/through-hole soldering environments. Peel-A-Way Removable Terminal Carriers allow virtually any pattern of sockets and/or pins to be combined on a single sheet for one-time PCB loading as compared to the costly and time consuming operation of discrete terminal placement (manual or automated stitching). The RoHS Compliant insulator is made from high temperature polyimide film and can be left in place after soldering for added stability or easily removed for full solder joint solder joint visibility, inspection and test.
Specific applications include socketing of relays, power devices (i.e. converters, transformers), temperature and process (i.e. flux) sensitive sensors, displays and other devices as well as applications in various industries including automotive, aerospace, computer and peripherals, industrial, instrumentation and test, medical, military, telecom and others. Standard configurations such as DIP, SIP, and PGA patterns are available with a 3-day lead-time.
