Manufacturers : Cables and connectors : Edge card connectors

Edge card connectors are a type of electrical connector widely used in the electronic industry. Memory modules that comprise memory chips mounted on a daughter board are often connected to a mother board of an electronic device, such as a personal computer by means of a card edge connector. Daughter boards are often called as edge cards, because typically one edge of the card contains a plurality of electrical contacts or contact pads that extend laterally along the edge and provide the point of operative electrical connection between the edge card circuitry and the mother board circuitry. In electronic devices such as cellular phones, telephones, PDAs and digital cameras, a variety of functions are added by inserting an IC card with a built-in memory or control IC, such as a SIM (subscriber identity module) card, an MMC (multimedia card), a Smart Media card and an SD (super density or secure digital) card. Edge card connector is used to provide an interconnection between a circuit board and another board that is commonly known as a daughter board. Edge card connectors have an elongate housing defining an elongate receptacle or slot for receiving the mating edge of the printed circuit board. A female edge connector comprises one or more slots. Electrical contacts interior to the one or more slots terminate exterior to the edge connector in a plurality of solder tails. A male edge connector comprises a plurality of edge connector traces which are formed on, and arranged perpendicularly to, the edge of a PC board. In order to connect two electrical subassemblies comprising edge connectors, a male edge connector of a first subassembly is inserted into a female edge connector of a second subassembly.
