That\'s an idea worth pursuing -- though I wonder if SIM card connectors
are designed for many mating cycles (?)

Thanks!

[I may, actually, be able to use something like that to repair a bit of kit
that I have lying around, here -- mangled pins!]

But, despite its ubiquity, it seems like it is almost always a \"custom\"
related to the actual device implementation. The only a la carte approach
that I could think of was pogo pins (from test fixture clamshells)

Well no, if these aren\'t \"from a menu\" I don\'t know what is?--
Have you ever SEEN a product deployed with these? There are many products
that USE a mechanism of this sort (\"despite its ubiquity\") but, \"it seems like
it is almost always a \'custom\' related to the actual device implementation\".

I\'ll see if I can make any of them work in a prototype and likely have to
rely on incorporating the concept directly into the case design. It can\'t
be \"rocket science\" so I imagine I can find an ME who can sort out the
proper shapes and material characteristics for maximal reliability and
durability.

Not cheap, mind; but, as you didn\'t specify a cost target, I\'m going to say my
job is done here. :^)
[my pogo pins approach was \"too expensive\"]

For pretty much anything consumer (\"intended for consumer market\"), you\'d
expect cost to be a significant factor. The connectors I mentioned (elsewhere
this thread) were ~$30. But, in a $10K product, that cost disappears.

OTOH, the \"ubiquitous\" use of this feature always seems to be encountered
in INexpensive products; cases where clearly \"sexier\" (appeal to consumer)
implementations would be more marketable (e.g., contactless charging and
data transfer).

[I\'ve already ruled that out based on cost -- as I suspect most other
consumer designs have. We\'re starting to see it, now, with some phones;
but, they\'re operating at a point where they just \"pay for the plastic\"]

(mechanical stuff is a PITA) Thanks!

I don\'t think I can use them (too small/fine) but
I\'m going to look into buying some for some of my
personal kit!

Thanks!

the top part has tri-axial terminals (a pin and two cylindrical shells and the botom part has
recessed spring-loaded contacts for live, neutral, and earth that press up on
the contacts

Nice idea. A mated pair from Digikey costs about $300.

Oh, you noticed that, too? :> (at first, I thought it was a \"case price\";
then reminded myself \"Amphenol...\")

Still, cute little connectors if some fell into my lap!
