J-lead Terminal Configuration

Reading time ( words)

This J-lead terminal configuration has been added to the Series 219 surface mount SPST DIP switch line. Ongoing miniaturization of electronic equipment and associated internal PCBs have necessitated that manufacturers further miniaturize components used on PCBs to allow for compact placement. Unlike conventional gull-wing surface mount terminal configurations, where the terminals extend away from the body of the DIP switch, the J-lead construction forms the terminal alongside and under the product, said to reduce the required placement width by approximately 0.100" (2.54 mm).
