Molex's new High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) connectors and cable assemblies provide an uncompressed digital link between consumer electronics equipment and audio/video monitors. HDMI is a small, user-friendly interconnect that can carry up to 5 Gbps of combined video and audio in a single cable. This system eliminates the cost, complexity and confusion of multiple cables used to connect current A/V systems.
Molex's HDMI line-up includes a 19-pin surface mount connector that is available with or without a panel-mounting flange. In addition, a black-color cable assembly is offered in standard lengths of two, three and five meters. The connector sits flush within the unit like other consumer I/O components, and has springs on the side and bottom for grounding and mating retention. An easy-to-use friction lock design blends in well with home entertainment equipment while providing secure electrical contact with smooth cable insertion and extraction. The 0.50mm (.020") pitch SMT connectors are fully shielded for ESD protection, gold plated for reliability and are 100% lead-free.
