Looking for a 12-position zero-insertion-force edgecard connector. AMP has one designed for PCI cards, but it has like 48 positions or something. I'd like something smaller.
The application is a field-test fixture. Requirements for the device include: low insertion force, high reliability, modest size, and life in the thousands of cycles.
The circuit board pads are raw copper. What kind of problem does that pose? The customer would prefer to not use pogo pins. Don't ask me why.
