GCT are excited to be first to market with a Nano SIM connector
. SIM8050 is a 6 contact push-pull Nano SIM connector with 1.45mm profile height, 5,000 insertion cycles, card stop function with an operating temperature rating of -20°C to +80°C.
SIM8050 accepts the recently introduced new Nano SIM card format, Nano-SIM or 4FF (4th form factor) measures 12.3mm × 8.8mm × 0.67mm and reduces the previous format to the contact area while maintaining the existing contact arrangements. Compared to Micro SIM a smaller area of isolating material remains around the contacts to avoid short circuits with the socket. The 0.67 mm thickness of the Nano-SIM card is approx. 15% percent less than Mini/Micro SIM card thickness of 0.76mm.
SIM 8050 available Q2 2013, other nano SIM connector types are in development.
