TE Connectivity (TE) announces a new low profile single sided DDR3 (Double-Data-Rate 3) SODIMM (Small Outline Dual In-line Memory Module) connector that delivers peak performance with high-speed data applications.

Designed to accept the new DDR3 single sided SODIMM, the connector ensures durable connectivity to optimize device functionality, speed and usability. It features a 35 percent reduction in height, as compared with similar low profile products, which in turn reduces the height of the end-product by 5 to 10 percent. It also reduces motherboard shadow areas by nearly 156 mm2, or 312 mm2 for common dual-socket implementation. The DDR3 SODIMM connector accepts modules that meet JEDEC MO268 industry standards and is offered in both standard and reverse types. This product's benefits include:

  • Reduces connector height by 35 percent
  • Reduces layout space by 6 percent
  • Helps reduce device height by 5 to 10 percent
  • Offers ultra low profile for new mobile computing form factors
