Fujitsu Micro SD Connectors

Expanding its PCMCIA card connector offering, Fujitsu Components America, Inc. today released a very low-profile connector for micro SD/TransFlash cards. With a mounted height of 1.6mm, it is the lowest profile connector currently available for micro SD cards. The connector uses a proprietary push-push structure that provides positive tactile feedback during card insertion and withdrawal. A card drop protection mechanism prevents the card from falling out during pre-insertion and forced card extraction after it’s locked in. When ejected, the card travels 3.5mm from its locked position.

Featuring Fujitsu’s precise die-and-molding technology, the Fujutsu FCN-560 series micro SD connector measures 15mm (D) x 14mm (W) x 1.6mm (H) and has a life cycle of ten thousand insertions/withdrawals. The operating temperature range is -20°C to 70°C. The Fujitsu microSD FCN-560 series connector is RoHS-compliant. Available immediately, it is priced at $0.45 per device in 200K-400K quantities per month.
