Digi-Key Corporation Announces Stock on Hirose ZX Series

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - October 8, 2009

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced it has stock on Hirose's ZX Series of extremely small, high-reliability connectors. These connectors comply with the physical, electrical, and environmental requirements of Micro-USB Standard (USB 2.0).

These products are available on Digi-Key's global websites and are featured in its print and online catalogs.

ZX Series plugs and receptacles have several configurations and mounting styles (top and bottom mount, reverse and mid-mount) as well as several solder tab configurations, meeting a variety of manufacturers' applications. A unique contact and lock configuration assures high reliability while maintaining easy insertion/disconnection. Their fully mated condition, when mated with a corresponding HRS connector, is confirmed by a definite tactile sensation.

Typical applications for the Hirose ZX Series include ultra-thin phones, data recorders, readers, cameras and camcorders, PDAs, portable music players, headsets, handheld GPS units, and other applications requiring high-reliability Micro-B interface connectors.
