Microminiature Wire-to-Board Connectors

Molex microminiature wire-to-board connectors are designed for dense electronic packaging. These connectors provide superior signal integrity, space savings and reliability for mobile and other applications. Molex microminiature wire-to-board connectors are a proven solution for designs that require higher pin count connectors to carry more signal lines in less space.

Available from 1.00mm to 2.50mm pitch sizes, these wire-to-board connectors feature:

  • Vertical and right angle configurations
  • SMT and through hole board terminations
  • Tin and gold plating options
  • Single and dual row options
  • Applicable for 32 AWG wire and larger
  • Positive latch and friction lock housing features
SlimStack™ Board-to-Board Connectors

SlimStack™ is the family name for Molex's broad range of Micro SMT stacking board-to-board connectors. The family covers stack heights from 0.70mm to 20.0mm in pitch categories of 0.40mm, 0.50mm, 0.635mm, 0.80mm and 1.00mm.

The SlimStack connectors offer system designers a wide range of flexibility to meet the tight packaging needs found in applications such as mobile phones, digital still cameras, notebook PCs and other compact equipment. Along with various pitch and stack options, the series covers circuit size needs from 6 to 240. All versions are gold-plated (except 0.80mm pitch) for high reliability over multiple mating cycles. Other features include durable contact design, SMT nails that provide strong board retention, and a friction locking feature for added mating retention in some products.

FFC/FPC Connectors

Molex offers a broad range of low-profile FFC/FPC connectors for tight-packaging applications. These miniature FFC/FPC SMT connectors come in various fine-pitch options. Push and flip-type actuators, which are pre-assembled covers, secure the connection between the FFC-FPC and the connector terminals. A broad range of ultra low-profile SMT FFC/FPC connectors is also available. Molex is continually developing lower-profile and higher-density features to meet the downsizing needs of electronic equipment makers.

New features recently added to Molex's microminiature FFC/FPC connector portfolio include dual-contacts to eliminate the need to source different top and bottom contact versions, narrow width versions for further space savings and various cable tab and actuator locking styles to provide additional cable alignment and retention.

Memory Card Connectors

Molex provides one of the industry’s widest ranges of connectors for today’s miniature memory cards. With the demand for exchanging images and data between portable devices and PCs growing, a number of flash memory industry standards have emerged. Molex offers a solution to all of the major types of flash memory media.

Our range includes industry standard versions with features such as normal/reverse mounting, various card insertion systems and profile heights. Custom solutions are also offered to meet unique design needs, such as combo-style connectors.

Molex’s proven expertise in areas such as fine-pitch micro connectors and PC Card technology have helped in the development of some of the most innovative and dependable miniature memory card connectors.
