Omron's New XD2B Battery Connector For Smartphones And Other Mobile Devices Is The Smallest In The Industry, And Will Make Further Miniaturization Of Mobile Devices Possible. (Photo: Business Wire)
OMRON Corporation (TOKYO:6645)(ADR:OMRNY) today announced the planned launch of its new XD2B battery connector in mid-December 2012. With a pitch of 2mm and a depth of 2.6mm, this new battery connecter is the smallest of its kind currently available in the industry.* The ultra-compact XD2B battery connector is compatible with batteries for smartphones and other mobile devices.
* As of December 6, 2012, according to an OMRON survey
Development BackgroundAs mobile devices such as smartphones incorporate increasingly higher functionality and slimmer designs, it is necessary to reduce the size of components embedded in these devices without compromising reliability. Connector contacts are usually formed using a pressing process, but pressing technology has several serious drawbacks. For instance, with pressing technology it is difficult to make the width of formed products smaller than the thickness of the original sheet to be pressed, and there are limitations on how far the bending radius of metal can be reduced. These drawbacks make it difficult to satisfy customer demand for greater miniaturization and higher contact reliability.
OMRON has found a way around these problems by specially developing a new electroforming technology based on further advancement of the company's microfabrication and materials technologies. This advancement has led to the development of a battery connector with a 2mm pitch and a 2.6mm depth, using subminiature contacts that are impossible to form with conventional press technology.Features The industry's smallest pitch and depthThe XD2B's significantly reduced PCB footprint contributes to further miniaturization of devices and larger battery sizes. High contact reliabilityThe XD2B's contact is significantly stronger than conventional pressed contacts. Its spring-contact configuration fits tightly to the battery contact pad improving contact force, and providing greater resistance against momentary power outages caused by drop impacts.
