Instant access to fast data interconnect

Amphenol CS connectors enable data transfer rates up to 985MB/s with the SD Express and microSD Express card sockets. They support the PCIe Gen 3 interface, plus the NVMe application protocol. Features include: compliance with SD7.0 specifications; pin recognition that ensures better read function when inserting the memory card; and improved protection.


Their target applications include consumer electronics such as notebook PCs, UAVs/drones, game consoles, digital cameras, smartphones, pads and servers, plus automotive applications such as infotainment or recorders.


The SD Express version is a push-push connector with a gold flash contact surface. While the microSD Express is available as a push-pull variant and has gold-plated connectors for corrosion resistance and optimal conduction of the electrical signal.


Both types are backward compatible with the previous legacy version for (micro)SD cards. They also score with a long service life of 5,000 mating cycles. The products conform to RoHS, are lead-free and are manufactured with halogen-free resin.
