SMIA Compliant Camera Sockets

Molex’s Standard Mobile Imaging Architecture Compliant sockets come with an anti-short housing wall design

SMIA Compliant Camera Sockets Molex's space-saving, highly reliable standard mobile imaging architecture (SMIA) compliant camera sockets support ultra-slim mobile phone, tablet PC, and vision system applications. Available in mid- and top-mount designs, these sockets meet a variety of design requirements, including low-profile (space-constrained), single-side PCB, compact footprint, and more. The socket's dimpled terminals feature reduced contact radius, width, and area, for higher contact pressure and greater electrical reliability during mating. A key-slot feature on the socket housing guides insertion of the camera module in the correct orientation. Each housing has a pick-and-place zone for automated placement during assembly. Parts are packed in tape-and-reel for easy handling and loading.
