Southern Electronics exhibitor Yamaichi Electronics has upgraded two items in its range of HDMI interfaces. The latest developments are with versions D and E. Type D is a Micro HDMI connector and type E is specific to the automotive industry.
The Micro HDMI in version D (PKS019-40xx-0) offers compact dimensions of 5 .80×7.65×3.20mm (length x width x height) and contacts with a special insertion moulding that prevents them from bending when the other connector is plugged into them. Lateral guides also support the insertion of the cable side and protect the contacts from lateral stress and scratches. This ensures a high level of contact reliability in operation. The Micro HDMI series is available in SMT and TH variants. The contacts are gold-plated. The D type is packaged in tape-on-reel, optionally with an additional Kapton film to support installation.
The version E is the HDMI automotive connector (PKS019-5000-0VE). Its differentiating feature is the special housing that protects the actual HDMI connector. This allows the interface itself to be slightly recessed making it easier to build into the chassis. This 19-pin version offers a temperature range is -40° to +85°C and meets specification 1.4b and has been developed and tested specifically for the automotive industry. The SMT implementation saves space when assembling the connector, and at 25.5 x 24.5 x 12.5 mm (length x width x height), offers advantage over existing solutions,says the company. The connector is delivered in tape-on-reel packaging.
Yamaichi Electronics also offers complete HDMI cable assembly for automotive applications. Here, the cable connector has the same form factor as the HDMI type E on the device and can engage into the housing. This keeps the connection secure under the vibration and shock of driving. Disconnecting the cable side requires only a slight press on a tab on the connector to release the locking.
The high-speed connector series HF601-22-03 represents an additional expansion of the product line for internal HDMI transmission. A special contact design allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbps.
