SYCAMORE low profile single-piece SMT contact

The SYCAMORE contact is a single-piece, SMT socket contact. It is designed for direct assembly to the PCB, using two terminals to balance on the PCB and for the rest of the contact to sit in a hole in the PCB. The design eliminates the outer shell typical on existing two-piece PCB sockets, and adds the flexibility of Tape and Reel packaging for automated assembly. It improves on existing SMT sockets by including 3 points of contact for ensuring signal continuity, and improved material choice for durability.
