Molex has introduced a new range of Secure Digital (SD) Memory Card connectors that accept miniature flash memory cards up to 64 MB for applications such as PDAs, portable audio players, digital cameras and cellular phones. The connectors include card detect and write-protect switch functions to enable secure downloading of digital data such as audio or image files.

The postage-stamp size cards meet the needs of compact and portable electronic equipment that require secure and removable storage solutions.

Molex's SD Card connectors are offered in top and bottom mount styles and measure 3.10 mm (.122 inches) high. Both nine-circuit versions accept industry standard SD memory cards and include metal grounding covers for ESD protection. Each features a unique "push-push" ejection system for easy card insertion/extraction and secure card retention. Other features include beveled spring contacts for secure mating retention and offset terminals for first make/last break capabilities. The 2.50 mm (.098 inches) pitch connectors are rated at 0.5 A and can withstand up to 10,000 cycles. They come in embossed tape for automatic board mounting.
