LISLE, Ill â€šÃ¢â‚¬â€œ Molex Incorporated (NASDAQ: MOLX and MOLXA) introduces the next generation HDMI* Type D (Micro) connector, which was recently announced by the HDMI Licensing Committee, to meet the digital interface requirements of consumer electronic products. The HDMI Type D (Micro) connector is the industryâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first miniaturized connector solution for delivering high definition video and images from mobile devices to flat panel screens. The connector, which meets all the electrical and mechanical specifications of the just released HDMI Specification 1.4, will provide significant benefits to the digital still camera and mobile device markets.
The HDMI Type D connector standard was developed by the HDMI Consortium. As an integral part of this team for the HDMI Type D concept, Molex was responsible for proposing the connector design and connector specification.
The new Type D (Micro) connector is about half the size of the current Type C (Mini) HDMI connector on the market today. Despite its smaller size, the new Type D version delivers equivalent mechanical strength and electrical characteristics. Mobile phone and consumer customers have expressed strong interest in this new technology that will enable users to display higher definition video, photos and other content from their mobile devices onto full-size flat panel TV screens.
