Original Press Release:

New SD Card Reader with Stand-off and Push/Push System

MMC Card also compatible

Munich, October 2009 - Yamaichi Electronics now offers the FPS009-2910-0, a new Push / Push SD Card connector with stand-off.

The card reader FPS009-2910-0 has been newly developed on the basis of the already established top mount component FPS009-2901-0. It offers the same advantages but also an interesting new feature: the card reader has a stand-off of 1.2mm and thus allows for mounting of other components underneath / below the reader.

As top mount component it is designed for the assembly on the top side of the PCB. A close metal cover together with four grounding tabs ensures an excellent EMC behaviour. The reader is equipped with two card brakes which effectively avoid the fling-off of the card. Further features are among others:

- smooth push-in / push-out card insertion and extraction mechanism with defined ejection,

- soft lock mechanism for the SD card,

- automatic card detection,

- write protection switch.

The card reader FPS009-2910-0 is packaged and delivered on tape reel belts.

This component for Flash memory card applications suits perfectly for wireless communication, portable computing and end-consumer applications.

Yamaichi Electronics do not only offer this card reader with stand-off but a wide range of card connectors for all available Flash and SIM card types with different form factors like microSD, miniSD, SD, RS-MMC, MMCmicro, MMC, CompactFlash, xD etc., as well as multicard versions.

More technical details, electrical specifications and further products for mobile and other applications can be found directly in the data sheet or under or in the catalogue "Connectors & Sockets 2009" which can be ordered on the above mentioned website.
