A new connector to support the next-generation interface for consumer
electronic products such as digital televisions, DVD players, and set-top
boxes, has been developed by FCI.
The high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) utilizes a small,
user-friendly connector designed to carry up to 5Gbps of uncompressed video
and audio in one cable.
HDMI integrates video and audio into one connector, replacing DVI, which
only carries video signaling. The HDMI connectors contains metal shields
for better EMI protection and provides low impedance mismatch. The 19
position, surface mount terminated receptacle also comes with the option of
a panel-mount flange.
The connector is rated for 10,000 mating cycles, is RoHS compliant and uses
gold plating in the contact area.More news from FCI
