FCI has expanded its line of storage interface interconnects with the development of a connector for use with the information Versatile Disk for Removable usage (iVDR) standard. A connector board member for the iVDR Consortium, FCI’s connector range contributes to standardizing the next-generation large-capacity data platform in applications such as media cartridges and internal port terminations; PCs, servers, set-top boxes, and the like; and auto-loading mechanisms in host applications. The iVDR standard can be a hard disk drive or a solid-state device capable of recording copyright-protected high-definition content without loss of quality while maintaining SAFIA security protection.
FCI’s iVDR connector provides a single row of 26 contacts and 1.27mm pitch. The receptacle is available in right-angle and vertical versions with SMT leads. The right-angle form factor features a fixed-screw hole while the vertical type features a hold-down on each end of the connector. The iVDR connector is RoHS Compliant and compatible with lead-free processing temperatures.
