Molex has announced that its next generation HDMI Type D(Micro) connector is now available for purchase. The HDMI Type D (Micro) connector is a new miniaturized connector solution designed to help deliver high definition (HD) video and images from mobile devices to flat panel screens. The connector meets all of the electrical and mechanical specifications of the HDMI Specification 1.4a released in March 2010.
The new Type D (Micro) connector is about half the size of the Type C (Mini) HDMI connector version, but delivers equivalent mechanical strength and electrical characteristics. Mobile phone and consumer customers have expressed strong interest in this new technology that will enable users to display HD video, photos and other content from their mobile devices onto full-size flat panel TV screens.
“Type C HDMI connectors were too large to support the newer and more compact designs of handheld devices,” said Scott Sommers, group manager, new product development, Molex, in a statement.
