C&K Components has developed an ultra-miniature, surface-mount DIP
switch that delivers consistent electrical performance and high reliability.
The half-pitch TDA Series DIP switch features bifurcated contacts that
provide increased electrical reliability when compared to other contact
technologies. In addition, the switches are process-sealed for both
surface-mount soldering and washable-processing, making them ideal for
hand-held electronics devices, portable computer devices, and
instrumentations and controls.
"C&K has made the investment to enhance and expand our DIP switch product
offering, delivering new switch features and options that provide design
engineers with flexibility when specifying a DIP switch for a particular
design," said Owen Camden, business development manager at C&K Components.
The RoHS-compliant TDA Series is available in two termination styles,
S-termination (Gullwing) and J-termination (Bend).
The single pole, single
throw (SPST) DIP switch is available in multiple positions, including 2, 4,
6, 8 and 10 positions. The TDA Series DIP switch features a contact rating
of 24 V DC, 25 mA (switching state) and 50 V DC, 100 mA (steady state). Operating temperature ranges from -40ºC to +85ºC. The TDA Series switches
are available in tape and reel or tube packaging.
