I have this surface mount switch and noticed that the lead type is slightly different than other similar switch types. I know that it's not a J-Lead or Gull Wing as J-Leads typically protrude from the surface of the package.
Would it simply be called an SMD terminal, tab, pad, etc? Or would there be a proper name to this? Would anyone know if there's specific terminology for this lead?
I'm not designing anything, I'm simply curious about the terminology.
Here's the datasheet of the device in question.
When I compare the joystick leads to that of this JEDEC standard, the pins do not form into a J-shaped configuration with the portion of the lead in contact with the printed wiring board.
