SMIA95 16pin thruboard socket for main camera General MIPI SMIA specs: http://read.pudn.com/downloads95/doc/project/382834/SMIA/SMIA_Mechani cal_Specification_1.0.pdf Hard to find anywhere Somebody should try to contact http://originalspareparts.com.ua/parts/5400385/socket_smia95_through_ board_r21/ Today I sent an inquiry to the mail addr in http://launch3telecom.com/pdf/nokia/smia95.pdf Alternative: think about using the ONboard type ( http://namerica1.smkusa.com/webinfo.nsf/0/d2e9192651d5275388256fd6005 973a1/$FILE/SMIA95.pdf ), which seems a tiny bit easier to source. Might be feasible when placing the socket on upper-board

possible alternatives to check: CLE9116-2901E http://www.gookok.com/cp.asp?id=51404 http://www.smk.co.jp/p_file/CMSockete_20100330.pdf (on-board CLE9016-0111F) maybe even http://stellatech.com/nokia-lumia-625-btb-connector-camera-socket,a,e n,815337.html

N97 cam module seems a working alternative of identical component in a different package (flex with B2B connector) Height of N97 cam module incl steel shielding/fixture: ~8.5mm. Distance from felt ring in case till upper rim aka kbd frame outer surface (roundabout where we see lower side of UPPER): 10.8mm. So we have a ~2.5mm for a patch of ds-sticky PU foam (after compression) to mount the N97 cam to UPPER. Usung this approach we don't need SMIA95 but have to find a mat(ch)ing female connector for the hirose B2B on cam module's flex

The Panasonic AXE720127A looks as if it may be compatible with the connector on the FPC: http://pewa.panasonic.com/assets/pcsd/catalog/a35s-catalog.pdf Digi-Key: USD 1.41, no stock, MOQ 500, 2 months lead time. Mouser: USD 1.41, no stock, MOQ 320, 8 weeks factory lead time. Arrow: USD 1.70, no stock, MOQ 500. Avnet: not in catalog. Farnell: not in catalog. Seems that we may have to ask Panasonic for samples.

Correction: AXE720127A can't be the the right part. We verified the connector geometry again and found out that the pich isn't 0.35 mm but the much more common 0.40 mm. We're still searching for something that really fits. Characteristics of the connector on the FPC: 0.4 mm pitch, 20 pins, metal fittings on the short (!) sides, total length of plastic about 5.1 mm, width of plastic/contacts about 1.5 mm, height of connector (without mating part), about 0.6-0.7 mm. Especially the fittings on the side seem to be quite unique.

Good news: I think I found it. The critter on the FPC seems to be a Hirose DF37B-20DP-0.4V(53). Digi-Key don't have the correct picture of it, that's why I missed it before. http://www.hirose.co.jp/cataloge_hp/ed_DF37_20140305.pdf We'll probably want the DF37NB-20DS-0.4V(51), though the DF37NC-20DS-0.4V(51) (no fittings) should also work. Digi-Key: USD 0.44 @ 1000, 8076 in stock. http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/DF37NB-20DS-0.4V (51)/H11849CT-ND/2230649 Also available at Mouser (same price, 4500 stock) and listed but non-stock at Avnet. Farnell has the series but not this part. Arrow knows nothing of it.

Preliminary additional info: length of flex cable from module boddy til end: ~ 16.2m connector start (side closer to module): ~5.5mm from flex end connector end: ~1.5mm from flex end http://neo900.org/stuff/joerg/N97-cam/

looking at back of cam and onto the B2B-conn, cam left conn right, using a countinc scheme of 10 11 09 12 08 13 07 14 06 15 05 16 04 17 03 18 02 19 01 20 it seems that pin 11, 14, 17 are connected to the shielding "backside" huge "trace" of the FPC, which suggests they are on GND and above numbering scheme in line with schematics of #3 http://projects.goldelico.com/p/neo900/issues/515/#ic1908. Checked by visual inspection with light-thru and top-light

pin 2 and pin 5 and pin 8 as well, so yes, this definitedly is the right numbering scheme
