Docking connector offers 50% space savings

Touted as one of the most compact solutions for devices such as digital cameras, audio players, and mobile phones that use a cradle docking function, the new dual-row 0.50-mm (.020-in.) pitch CradleCon connector system from Molex Inc. provides about a 50 percent space savings compared to single-row docking solutions, while offering a smaller form factor than most competitive dual-row systems, said the company.
