C&K Components : An International Collaboration
C&K Components is one of two operating divisions (the other being Delta Tech Controls) of CoActive Technologies, a designer and manufacturer of a broad range of engineered interface solutions. C&K Components focuses on switches, smart card connectors, and high-reliability connectors. The company was established in 1957 in Newton, Massachusetts as a manufacturer of magnetic computer memory units. The company has since combined with other specialty companies to become an important supplier of interface and connector technology. In 2007, C&K Components joined the Rudolf Schadow Company of Berlin, Germany (founded in 1945 and specializing in radio repair) and the Jeanrenaud company of Dole, France (a switch manufacturer founded in 1928) to form a new company while retaining the C&K Components name.
This fusion of three different histories, product lines, and experience results in an innovative company with an extremely broad product portfolio. C&K Components stocks more than 55,000 unique part numbers. Their selection of switch product features includes: toggle, rocker, pushbutton, rotary, key, slide, DIP, and thumbwheel. The company produces resilient smart card connectors, either full size or SIM/SAM card. C&K has recently developed some powerful products in the CCM03 family including: the CCM03-3001 for application in high heat and humidity, the CCM03-3511 with increased contact force to absorb shock and high vibration, and other products specifically designed for extreme environments. Typical applications for these products range from transaction, identification, POS, GPS, and mobile. Additionally, the company features zero ppm defect manufacturing capability on automotive-grade products and high-reliability connectors that can function in a space environment.
C&K Components has over 3,000 ESA QPL-qualified (approved by the European Space Agency) rectangular connectors and a selection of micro-D, single in-line microminiatures, and D-subminiature connectors that can be used in satellites or research labs.
