SMART’s patented retention clips highly improve reliability resistant to vibration, shock and sudden movements. As industrial and ruggedized customer equipment is exposed to severe vibration situations, module retention clips can be mechanically secured to the sides of memory socket to prevent the latches from popping open.

(Please note that retention clips and heat spreaders are only available for purchase in conjunction with SMART modules.)

Why Retention Clips?

For ruggedized and harsh operating conditions, SMART offers retention clips to secure the socket latches in place and industrial grade temperature operation from -40°C to +85°C.

How Does It Work?

3 easy steps to assemble and disassemble the retention clips.

1. Push the clip to snap into place.

2. Clip fully snap onto the socket.

3. Open the clip and pull it out.
