SKEDD in practical use

An innovation can only be justified if there is a place for its benefits in the market. In particular at the start of the development of a product or technology, when there are still many questions unanswered, the views and experiences of early testers and customers are of great help.

We ask our customers: what experiences have you had with the new SKEDD technology?

“We have collaborated with Würth Elektronik ICS to develop SKEDD technology for connections of printed circuit boards with LED’s. In practical terms the outstanding features are the minimal height, the slender dimensions, the high current-carrying capacity and the solderless connection. We use the technology to connect LED strips together without causing irritating shadows. It has already proved its worth in the lighting products of eigerLight.”

(René F. Oberhänsli, director and technical manager, S-TEC electronics AG)

For Microgate, developing and manufacturing the SKEDD spring contact together with Würth Elektronik ICS was of great benefit. The extremely short response times by Würth Elektronik allowed us to produce, on schedule, a testable capacitive sensor module for controlling the adaptive mirrors of the new generation of extremely large telescopes (ELTs).”

(Gerald Angerer, development and project manager, Microgate S.r.l.)

Würth Elektronik ICS has created an optimal connecting solution for Getriebebau NORD – one of the leading manufacturers of drive technology – using SKEDD technology, and thus granted the company valuable freedom in component design.
