TE Connectivity – Scalable Spring Fingers for Wearables and PCB Applications



TE Connectivity (TE) introduces a new line of scalable spring finger products.

Spring fingers (also known as shield fingers, grounding springs or universal ground contacts) are single contact, surface mountable, internal connectors used in almost every small printed circuit board application. They provide an electrical connection and grounding from EMI noise and static between a PCB and other electronic components such as a secondary PCB, shield can, antenna, or speaker. This new line of products has an enhanced design of the sidewalls to help support operator placement.


  • Support operator placement with an enhanced sidewall design
  • Enable easy design changes with a common footprint used across the family
  • Offer design versatility with a broad range of available heights
  • Allow an easy and inexpensive method for connecting multiple PCBs
  • Prevent EMI noise and static for grounding between device and PCB
  • Provide a reliable connection in high vibration conditions
  • Accommodate soldering processes using standard pick-and-place equipment
