GCT has released the MEM2075, one of the slimmest memory card connectors in the market with a push-push ejector type. The MicroSD connector has a profile height of just 1.4mm making it a super-slim option for engineers where there are space limitations and height is a defining feature in their designs. The product length with card inserted is also a mere 17.25mm, adding to its credentials.
As well as the compact form factor, co-planarity is less than 0.08mm, ensuring profile is kept to a minimum on a PCB. Four PCB retention tabs in “V” profile also give the MEM2075 maximum mechanical strength versus competing products.
The connector is available in a stainless steel cover and latch with SMT contacts. A card detection switch is present in normally open configuration, with PCB locating pegs as an option. Operating temperature is between -25°C to +85°C and the connector has been tested to 5000 mating cycles.
“The MEM2075 takes the conventional MicroSD connector and pushes the boundaries on the physical dimensions,” commented Paul Hulatt, Product Manager at GCT. “Being one of the slimmest connectors in class, it’s a great addition to the GCT Memory Card Connector range and offers our customers greater flexibility with their designs where having a low product height is critical.”
In the face of device miniaturisation and the quest to have lighter, slimmer and more compact electronics, the requirement for smaller connectors remains strong. From portable electronics to wearable tech, the MEM2075 MicroSD connector is ideal for applications where space consideration is required.
