Spring fingers

Scalable spring fingers, also known as shield fingers or universal ground contacts, feature a preload function that doubles the working area of a common spring finger and increases contact force by 0.2 N. A dimple on the contact increases product reliability. The backward-bended tip prevents the finger from hooking by removing the sharp edge. On the back, there is a pick-and-place area that supports customer auto-assembly processes. Holes at the bottom increase soldering strength while reducing solder-wicking issues. Fingers are available in heights from 1.8 to 3.4 mm.
