Memory card connectors are a type of electrical connector that are used to allow a storage device such as a memory card, USB flash drive, and other types of storage media to connect to an electronic device. They are typically found in cameras, computers, PDAs, and other handheld devices. The memory card connector provides a means for powering, reading, and writing data to and from the memory card. Depending on the specification of the memory card, the connector can feature different types of electrical signals for data, power, and write protection. As new storage media, such as SD cards and microSD cards, are released, new connectors are designed to support the technology.
