Introducing New and Featured Products 




Early Engagement Receptacles 

Jan 2020

The latest receptacles designed by Mill-Max features minimal insertion length contact which allows for shorter mating leads. These receptacles accept lead diameters from .037” - .043” with a minimum mating lead length of .058” for top entry insertion. This is a 30% reduction in required lead length from the current receptacle offerings.  The reduction is due to the hourglass design and extended contact surface area, eliminating the need for excess protrusion through its fingers for reliable electrical contact.  The ability to use shorter mating pins provides several advantages such as compressed packaging, shorter electrical signal paths and lower potential RF signal interference.

Compression Mount Spring-Loaded Connectors

Aug 2019

The 858-22-00X-80-XX1101 and 858-22-00X-80-XX2101 connectors are new additions to our 4 mm pitch rugged spring-loaded series, they are the first Mill-Max connectors to incorporate spring pins with active plungers at each end. This unique feature makes these connectors ideal for situations in which a soldered connection is not desirable or may not be possible due to design constraints such as temperature considerations, stack up tolerance issues or where ease of assembly and disassembly is required. With spring-loaded plungers as the interface at both ends, the connector is sandwiched between two mating surfaces using screws to compress the plungers on the base end, eliminating the need for soldering. The opposite end plunger then acts as any other spring-loaded connector, ready to engage with a mating device or board.

New Ultra Tight Stability Clock Oscillator

May 2019

IQD has launched a new range of ultra-low frequency stability HCMOS based clock oscillators. The IQXO-923 series is available with a frequency stability of only ±5ppm over the full industrial operating temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees C. Available in either a voltage of 1.8V (IQXO-923-18) or 3.3V (IQXO-923-33) this new clock oscillator is housed in an hermetically sealed 3.2 x 2.5 mm ceramic package with a height of 1.1mm.
Frequencies can be specified in the range 10MHz to 160MHz and offer a start-up time of 5ms. With a phase jitter (12kHz to 20MHz) of 0.4ps typical and a phase noise of -99dBc/Hz at 100Hz and -144dBc/Hz at 10kHz these oscillators are ideal for use in designs where a clock oscillator can be used in place of an expensive TCXO. Applications include Ethernet, networking, smart meters, SONET, test & measurement, WLAN and Wi-Fi.       
The IQXO-923 includes an enable and disable function on pin 1 as standard and packaging options are either ‘Tape and Reel’ or ‘Cut Tape’.

New Zero Profile Receptacles

Jan 2019

Mill-Max has recently launched its zero profile receptacles which eliminates any above board connector protrusion, enabling overall package height to be reduced. These receptacles have a precision machined, hexagon shaped flange which is pressed into the PCB Plated Through-Hole (PTH) until flush with the surface of the board.  No soldering is required as the press-fit forms a gas-tight connection with a properly specified plated through hole.  After installation, the zero profile PCB contacts enable a broad range of devices to be plugged in while minimizing overall interconnect height.

New Rugged, Spring-Loaded Wire Termination Connectors

Oct 2018

The new 868 series connectors include solder-cups to accommodate wire and cable attachment along with flanged insulators and fastening options. They are ideal for mounting into product housings for docking stations, cable terminations, heavy duty quick connects and panel mount equipment.

Available in 2-6 positions, it features high temperature molded Nylon 46 insulators compatible with RoHS soldering processes. Mounting tabs, integrated into the insulators, provide a means for secure attachment to product housings or PCBs.

New Right Angle Solder Cup Headers

Aug 2018

Designed to simplify wire to board terminations, the new 380-10-1XX-10-003000 series right-angle headers are ideal for situations where space is limited and wires cannot be easily manipulated. These solder cup headers speed up the soldering process and reduce overall assembly height by eliminating the need to bend wires or cables for in-line connections.

New Board to Board Connectors

July 2018

Mill-Max Mfg., Corp. has developed a line of Horizontal SMT (HSMT) headers and sockets ideally suited for low profile parallel board-to-board or board-to-component mating. The removable plastic cap provides the convenience of a traditional connector and once removed delivers an interconnect system with a minimal surface mount profile.

These new sockets, 835-43-0XX-40-030001, and headers, 328-10-1XX-40-020001 are an excellent choice for applications where vertical board stacking is not an option, such as in LED lighting systems which often employ daisy-chained PCB’s to minimize overall package height.
