C&K Components, a leading international supplier of tact switches, toggle, rocker and pushbutton switches, and smart card interconnect devices, has developed an ultra-miniature, surface mount, side-actuated DIP switch. Designated the TDP Series, the half pitch switch features a dual bifurcated wiping action that ensures reliable contact. When mounted horizontally, the side-actuation mechanism provides visual confirmation of the on/off status.
The TDP Series is one of the first ultra-miniature, surface mount, half pitch, side-actuated DIP switches available in the industry, said David Webber, worldwide product manager for C&K Components. The high reliability, low profile and mounting options make the TDP switches ideal for a number of applications, including those currently using piano DIPs and require a miniature replacement solution, such as logic switching for computers and peripherals, as well as switching for industrial controls.

Additional applications for the TDP Series DIP switches include electronic cash registers and ATMs; automated warehouse delivery systems; hand-held electrical devices; portable computer and electronic devices; and instrumentation and controls.

The TDP Series DIP switches measure just 4.16mm above the PC board and feature a 1.28mm layout pitch. Process-sealed for surface mount wash processing, the RoHS-compatible devices feature gold over nickel over copper alloy contacts and a UL 94V-0 PPS flame retardant housing. The switches are rated for 24VDC, 25mA (switching) and 50VDC, 100mA (steady state) operation and feature life cycles to 1000 rotations (make and break) at full load. Operating temperature range is -20C to +85C.
