WILMINGTON, Mass. — Heilind Electronics Inc., the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking JAE's SM3 Series of connectors.
Slim and high-speed are two necessary and expanding characteristics in many applications. And the same is true for module card connectors. Therefore, JAE developed the SM3 Series card-edge connector to meet this demand. The SM3 Series is a compact card-edge connector for mobile devices that offers significant space savings. The SM3 is also compatible with the PCI-SIG, PCI Express M.2 specification, supporting multiple modules, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and solid-state drives.
The SM3 Series is available in two heights: 3.10mm and 4.10mm. The higher profile 4.10mm version allows 1mm height components to be mounted underneath the module. This feature maximizes the available mounting space, which contributes to greater board designing freedom for customers.
