NPA introduces a new miniature SMT test point recently added by Keystone Electronics Corp. to their test point range.
Featuring symmetrical flat-wire design to efficiently and safely test PCBs, the latest ‘mini-pad’ version enables high-strength, test point-to-PCB bonding with a minimal footprint.
The new Keystone miniature SMT test points not only enable cost savings, but also accept a variety of gripping probes to replace wire-wrap posts and turret terminals, thanks to their low profile design. These test points are ideal for testing circuitry of high density PCB packages.
Manufactured from phosphor bronze and silver plate, which can accommodate the use of both lead-free solder and traditional reflow processing, the miniature SMT test points are packed on tape and reel and available in 1,000- or 5000-piece reels. All are compatible with most vacuum and mechanical pick-and-place assembly systems.
Keystone is a major manufacturer of interconnect components and electronic hardware.
