 Industry’s smallest mounting area, "microSD™ Card Connector (Push-Pull type)" developed and marketed

We are pleased to announce the development and commencement of marketing of “micro SD™ card connector (Push-Pull type)”.

In recent years, requirements for a lower profile and smaller components have increased as mobile phones and small portable equipments became thinner and smaller.  The micro SD™ card is widely employed in many equipment as the ultra-small memory card and a further increase in the demand is expected. 

This new product is a small and low profile design with the mounting height of 1.47mm, width of 11.35mm and depth of 11.25mm and has achieved the industry’s smallest mounting area by the one-piece molded contact and housing and the unique shield cover design.  Such dimensions effectively bring out the advantages of size of the micro SD™ card and contribute to thinner and smaller equipments such as mobile phones (approx. 11% reduction in height, approx. 13% reduction in mounting area and approx. 23% reduction in volume from our previous equivalents). 

The card insertion/removal system is a Push-Pull system with a normal insertion direction. By employing a half-locking mechanism, the card can be securely hold and prevents the cards from flying out.  The shield cover employs a mechanism that augments shielding performance and connector strength.
