AVX Corporation has released a family of secure digital memory (SDM) card connectors that offer both integral card detect and write protect. Designated the 5638 Series, these Secure Digital Association (SDA) compatible connectors accept the new postage stamp size of removable flash storage media developed by Toshiba, SanDisk, and Matsushita (Panasonic).

The 5638 Series connectors feature a nine contact configuration with SMT tails located within the connector body to save PCB real estate. Guide rails assure proper alignment while incorporating mechanical/grounding tabs and location bosses. The connectors offer a current rating of 0.5 A per pin and a rated voltage of 5 V with dielectric withstanding voltage of 500 V rms/min. Operating temperature is – 25 ° to 90°C. All parts are surface mountable and compatible with automated assembly equipment.

The 5638 Series connectors include both low profile and narrow width options, with optional card eject features. The retention feature helps to retain the card in ruggedized portable applications. Two additional contacts accomplish both write protect and card detect functions.
