Our support team is very familiar with many of our customers' specific applications, especially those in telecommunications equipment, industrial controls, consumer products, alarms, motherboards, medical devices, and military gear. For example, the battery holders made for medical applications must be manufactured in zero-defect processes and be resistant to organic growth. The military sector requires battery holders featuring extreme shock and vibration resistance with no loss of power continuity. Telecommunications, alarms, motherboards, and many stationary consumer items use their batteries only for back-up power, and so they require long-lasting, oxidation-free holder solutions. We have learned the specific needs of each industry we sell to and have crafted products specifically to meet those needs. Less...

|Coin Cell Holder Solutions - Memory Protection Devices has pioneered a large number of new styles of coin cell battery holders to suit the various needs of the electronics industry. Our coin cell battery holders provide an excellent solution to save space on a crowded board and can offer more reliable connections while also having simple, tool-less battery replacements.
|Mini Coin Cell Holders - Memory Protection Devices has invented another whole new category of coin cell battery holders called Minis, which drastically reduce the height of battery holders on PCBs. The first Mini being released is the BU2032SM-JJ-MINI-GTR, designed for use with CR2032 batteries. While other CR2032 holder solutions often rise almost 5 mm above the PCB, MPD's BU2032SM-JJ-MINI-GTR rises under 2 mm with an installed CR2032.
|Snap Dragon Coin Cell Holders - Memory Protection Devices' has invented a whole new category of coin cell battery holders called Snap Dragons, which drastically increase the reliability of open top coin cell holders through the use of a snap-on cover piece. While other high reliability coin cell holder solutions can make battery installation and replacement difficult or impossible for end users, Snap Dragons offer an easy and intuitive battery installation and replacement process. The design is currently a patent pending technology with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and is the newest addition to MPD’s robust patent portfolio of battery holder technologies.

MPD was originally founded in 1980 by three executives with a wealth of experience in the electronics industry. Today, the company is being led into an era of fresh growth under a new president with over 30 years of experience. The company's name, Memory Protection Devices, refers to the initial usage of our battery holders, which was to power CMOS RAM, a special type of computer memory that is used to store system settings. Although we are still protecting memory with our battery holders, MPD has since branched out and we now have a diverse line of products. Links of InterestISO CertificateFAQPress Releases
