Molex Incorporated announced that its next generation HDMI Type D (Micro) connector is available. The HDMI Type D (Micro) connector is a new miniaturized connector solution designed to help deliver high definition video and images from mobile devices to flat panel screens. The connector, which meets all of the electrical and mechanical specifications of the HDMI Specification 1.4a released in March 2010 will be suitable for the digital still camera and mobile device markets. The new Type D (Micro) connector is about half the size of the Type C (Mini) HDMI connector version, but delivers equivalent mechanical strength and electrical characteristics. This new technology will enable users to display higher definition video, photos and other content from their mobile devices onto full-size flat panel TV screens. The HDMI Type D Micro connector is a 19-pin connector with a 0.40 mm (0.016") pitch provided in a 6.50 mm x 2.90 mm (0.256” x 0.114") stainless steel shell. The Type D family of products includes SMT receptacles of three different mount designs, a range of Category 2 Type-D-to-Type-A HDMI cable assemblies with a variety of cable lengths and wire gauge options, and a Category 2 HDMI Type-D Plug-to Type-A Receptacle adapter cable.
