ExpressCard Connectors

ExpressCard Connectors

We offer the ExpressCard compliant interconnect as the next generation PC Card standard from PCMCIA.

ExpressCard interconnect is compatible with advanced serial bus technologies, including USB and PCI Express. The ExpressCard products are available in two standard card sizes. ExpressCard Model 34 and ExpressCard Model 54 fit into a universal slot with one common connector size. The new specification provides the proven reliability and ease of use of the PC Card, while offering faster performance. The interconnection system includes a 26-position card connector and a surface mount, and a 26-position, right-angle host connector. We contributed both mechanical and electrical engineering input during the development phase of the new specification. The connectors are compliant to the current specification Revision 1.0 of the ExpressCard standard.
