This 105mm by 105mm by 1.5mm fiber optic connector is made of Kovar. It defied conventional PIM aspect ratio and size to meet specific dimension and hermetic requirement.
The bold move in adopting MIM in this design has reduced the materials wastage (in the case of machining from bar stock) tremendously. Kovar material is very costly due to its high Nickel content. Just the saving on materials alone has already accounted for 60% saving on the overall cost of the Kovar connector. The part design has won the Award of Distinction in the application of Powder Metallurgy category in 2003 Metal Powder Industry Federation (MPIF) Design Competition.
The complex geometries of the flip slider and hinge barrel capitalized on the advantages of PIM technology and elevated mobile design to a new level.
