  • Utilizes low profile, high density spring probe technology
  • Compression mount termination options
  • Design flexibility
  • Spring probe arrays configured to match required footprint
  • Integrated alignment, latching and sealing features

Smiths Connectors integrates industry-leading spring probe technology with extensive design experience to provide application-specific interposer solutions. Whether facing intense shock and vibration, extreme temperatures or environmental contaminants, Smiths Connectors tailors every solution to operate at peak performance without contact interruption.

Smiths Connectors interposers can be soldered or compression mounted allowing for a reduction in manufacturing costs and providing space savings in a confined area. Interposers can be designed to handle substantial amounts of power safely with some individual contacts capable of withstanding as much as 30 Amps in free air.

A comprehensive discussion with the Smiths Connectors team initiates the design process. Time is invested to understand the electrical, mechanical and environmental requirements of the project. Leveraging a broad portfolio of spring probe products with state-of-the-art modeling and
simulation tools, the ideal Smiths Connectors spring probe is recommended for the interposer. Consideration is given to the mating environment and additional aspects, such as component cut-outs, sealing gaskets, housing materials and alignment features, are suggested to complete the proposal. 

Smiths Connectors embraces a collaborative approach to ensure delivery of an innovative, high performance, reliable interposer which meets each customer’s specifications while exceeding their expectations.
