Development of “Header-type (H = 2.45 to 6.00mm) Connector for microSD™ Cards” with the Industry’s Smallest Mounting Space

  We are pleased to announce the development of a “header- type connector for microSD™ cards”.
Based on our unique design, this product’s structure supports variable height from 2.45mm to 6.00mm, improving the design freedom of equipment.
With a width of 11.45mm and length of 5.3mm, this space-saving header-type connector achieves the smallest mounting space in the industry. As well as exploiting the size merits of microSD™ cards, it makes effective use of space within devices through height variability, contributing to the increased thinness and smallness of devices such as mobile phones.
Its shield cover ensures sufficient soldered ground contact area in each corner, enabling high resistance to twisting force and providing a strong structure for card insertion through its connector reverse back-up. Further, due to its unique card detection SW  structure, the soldered part of each SW is placed at the back of the connector, preventing electrostatic discharge (ESD).
This product is added to our repertoire of microSD™ card connectors, which also includes push (lock)/pull (eject) and hinge models.
In the future, we intend to expand our repertoire of connectors that support various kinds of small-size memory cards.

Note) microSD™ is the trademark of the SD Association.
