AVX offers the Elco frameless PCMCIA kit which is claimed to provide maximum PCB usable space, allowing engineers to populate the PCB with more electronic components. By eliminating its frame and using connector retention brackets as grounding contacts, the kit frees PCB space. The stainless steel cover’s rigid interlocking mechanism means the machine is tamper-proof. With enhanced RF shielding, this type II PCMCIA kit has a reliable pin/socket design. It can be used for applications including fax/modems, pagers and handsets.
