Components Corporation, manufacturer of precision printed circuit board interconnect products,  announced  today the versatile  surface mounted TP- 107 Series of printed circuit board Test Points are now  available in silver-plate, a direct cross to the industry  familiar 5000 Series.  This economical replacement for other manufacturers’ test point products is offered with a .0001" Min. Silver over .00005" Min. Copper plate.

To accommodate mechanical stress on the bond in a surface mount design, the unique forming process of the TP-107 doubles the surface area of test point mounting. This is accomplished by forming the flat wire design in a spiral wrap on the mounting base resulting in an adhesion to the solder pad which requires in excess of 18 pounds of force to dislodge the test point from its solder pad.  The profile of the TP-107 readily accepts most commercially available spring clips and probes while providing a positive and secure anchor to the SMT board.

TP-107 surface mount test points are available in two formats: bulk packaged and tape-and-reel configuration. The taped version is fully compatible with ANSI/EIA-481 standards.   The TP-107 is formed from spring-tempered phosphor bronze flat alloy wire. In addition, the TP-107 test point can be plated with .0001 minimum matte tin finish over .0001 nickel plate.  Recommended mounting pad dimensions are 0.185" x 0.135".

Manufactured using Components Corporation’s proprietary technology to ensure the highest standards in performance, products may be confidently specified for use in a wide range of mission-critical applications, all abiding by the current RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC as well as REACH Regulations EC 1907/2006.

        Components Corporation offers complete engineering and application assistance on these and all of their board level interconnection products.   Current product data is available at their website
