Heilind Stocking JAE’s M.2 (NGFF) SM3 Series
Heilind Electronics is now stocking JAE’s SM3 Series of connectors, which was developed to meet the growing demand for thin high-speed components. The SM3 Series is a compact card-edge connector for mobile devices that offers significant space savings. The SM3 is also compatible with the PCI-SIG PCI Express M.2 specification, supporting multiple modules, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and solid-state drives.
The SM3 Series is available in two heights – 3.10mm and 4.10mm. The higher-profile 4.10mm version allows 1mm height components to be mounted underneath the module. This feature maximizes the available mounting space, which contributes to greater board design freedom for customers.
The SM3 Series is also lead-free, halogen-free, and RoHS-compliant.
