Kyocera miniaturises connector by 50%

Kyocera has announced its 5811 Series Board-to-Board connectors, which have been miniaturised to be about 50 percent smaller than conventional products and optimised for wearable devices.

Kyocera’s 5811 Series Board-to-Board connectors’ miniaturized size (1.7 mm width x 3.6 mm length) is optimised for wearables, handheld game consoles and other smaller electronics. The flat stacking structure maintains durability, workability when stacking, and reduction of damage despite its low 0.6mm stack height. In addition, it is resistant to the high current required for connectors which is a suitable design for battery connection.

Despite its ultra-compact design, it is highly durable and optimised to perform in high current (3A/Power Terminal). The plug stacking surface has an even, flat shape, and the receptacle is concave shape with no central convexity to improve insertion guidance and prevent damage during mating.

To meet customer demands for wearable devices, the 5811 series can accommodate 1-5 signal pins and 2 power pins.

The 5811 Series has been designed to click during stacking to ensure proper mating. In addition, it does not easily detach due to the high retention force.
