Molex's DMS-59(TM) System Connects Dual Monitors Reliably
DesignCon 2003, Santa Clara, CA - January 28, 2003 - Achieve a reliable connection for dual monitor systems with the new DMS-59(TM) Connector System From Molex Incorporated. VESA* chose Molex's DMS-59 system interface as the proposed standard for connecting both digital and analog multiple monitors to low-profile PCI and AGP graphic cards. This connector features Molex's LFH(TM) (Low Force Helix) contacts, which are widely used throughout the industry in a broad range of applications.
Per VESA's standard for Multi-Display Interfaces, this connector design has a voided pin, which is used as the keying mechanism. This connector system consists of a 59-circuit receptacle and cable plug adapter and meets VESA requirements for impedance, cross-talk and skew.
Molex has three adapter assemblies available: DMS-59 to two DVI-D receptacles; DMS-59 to two VGA receptacles; and DMS-59 to one DVI receptacle and one VGA receptacle.
Pricing for the DMS-59 Connector System depends on quantity and part number. For example, when purchased in quantities of 10,000, the receptacle would cost approximately $2.90 each. Typical lead time is four to six weeks. Samples of these products are now available.
