Chicago, Ill. – Newark element14 has launched an expanded range of TE’s spring fingers, a single-contact, surface-mountable internal connector with a variety of uses on a printed circuit board. The range is being expanded to include a variety of styles, heights and materials to meet all customers’ needs.
TE’s spring fingers are available with same day shipping, and can be used for antenna feeds, low voltage electrical connections or for grounding to prevent EMI noise and static caused by a speaker, motor, microphone or other sources of vibration. They are also known as shield fingers, grounding springs, universal ground contacts or clips.
Available in a variety of price breaks for production quantities, TEs spring fingers are a cost-effective solution for antenna feeds in all types of devices. They can be purchased in small quantities and full reel, in heights as low as 1.0mm and up to 4.3mm and require limited space on a PCB.
