PCB shield mounting - Ultra tiny clip (UTC)
The Ultra tiny clip (UTC) is a metal clip designed for attaching PCB-shielding cans/screening covers from our 1500 series.
This clip is to be mounted onto the surface of a PCB (SMT) and offers a fast solution for assembling RFI/EMI-shielding cans to PCBs. This clip eliminates the need for through holes and post reflow operations on the PCB. For best performance, the shielding clip should be mounted on the PCB ground area. This can be done by hand or by vacuum pick-up nozzle (automated).
This clip offers a great opportunity for tuning and re-work after the assembly of the screening cover. Thickness of the screening cover can be up to 0.12 mm. The clip can be supplied on reels of 20,000 pieces.
The Ultra tiny clip takes up 35% less space than the medium clip
