The FMS006-8010-0 card reader is a reversed-mount version with an ultra-flat
installation height of only 1.34mm. Such a small installation height has
conventionally only been possible for manual insertion/removal of the card, or
by using an indirect insertion or removal process such as a tray.
With the newly developed pull-ejector mechanism, it is now possible to provide
an even more convenient and reliable card removal, even in an ultra-flat
housing. The mechanism is triggered by pulling a clip, pushing the SIM card out
of the card slot by a defined distance. This ensures an ease removal.
The exterior dimensions of the device are 17.5x12mm. The card reader has 6
gold-plated contacts. Like nearly all Yamaichi card readers, this product also
has a 2-point contact design. It is designed in such a way that the best
possible contact reliability is ensured even in the face of vibrations and
Furthermore, the card reader has a high degree of security against the incorrect
insertion of the card. Thereby a special design feature would automatically stop
the card if it was inserted in the wrong direction.
The insulating body of the card reader is made of LCP, while the metal cover is
made of SUS. Four ground tabs provide outstanding EMC protection. Additional
metal reinforcements also fasten the contact carrier, ensuring coplanarity
The unit is mounted with SMT soldering on the bottom of the PCB (reversed mount
type). The card reader is delivered packaged on tape reel belts.
Yamaichi Electronics offers many other card connectors for all available Flash
and SIM card types, in different form factors, such as µSIM, microSD, SD
CompactFlash, multicard versions, etc.
