OVERVIEW
Mobile devices are increasingly thinner, while battery capacity and size increase. As a result space saving, lower profile, and high efficiency connectors are needed to optimize the design and maximize performance. The X-Beam Battery interposer integrates the historically proven Neoconix micro-spring design into an over-molded thermoplastic carrier allowing superior electrical performance coupled with ease of assembly in a ~ 1mm total mated height.

X-Beam Image

The X-Beam™ Battery Connector utilizes a redundant contact design for the battery terminal contacts (power and ground) to achieve a ultra-low resistance of between 1.50 – 5.00mOhm / terminal and up to 12 Amps current. The X-Beam™ Mobile FPC Battery family provides three (3) product options to meet most mobile device needs.
