C&K’s low-profile switches save space on PCB layouts, company says
NEWTON, Mass.—New SDB DIP switches from C&K, a designer and manufacturer of electromechanical switches, are reported to provide a low-cost option for logic and control applications in industrial, consumer, and telecommunications markets. The switches can also be used in the banking, retail, and server markets, C&K said in a press release.
The new DIP switch is said to provide product designers with a cost-effective option for applications that require a low-profile switch for space savings on PCB layouts. The SDB DIP switch has a high operating life cycle under load and comes in thru-hole or surface mount models, with additional tape and reel packaging available.
The SDB DIP switch joins C&K’s family of DIP switches that includes surface mount half-pitch DIP switches, low-profile and standard-profile DIP switches, rotary and coded DIP switches, SIP switches, and jumper switches with a variety of extended actuator and flush actuator styles. The company’s new SDB DIP switch is said to be well-suited for applications that include automation and control devices, servers, modems, routers, headsets, ATMs, and POS machines.
“We pride ourselves with offering global brands switches as we need to stay ahead of the market and competition,” said Jeffrey Phan, global product manager for C&K, in the release. “Our latest SDB DIP switch provides a best-in-class quality, cost-effective, low-profile switch option for designers and engineers operating on a budget.” More information on the switch is available here:
