Lexar, memory card and computer hardware company, was recently bought out by Longsys, a flash storage company from china. Soon after this transaction, Nikon rumors spread that Lexar was bought out by Longsys and the new owners would be discontinuing their XQD memory card line and relying on CFExpress.
The misunderstanding was started because Longsys is a flash storage company from China, which is understandable for those that do not know much about Lexar. Turns out, however, that the new owner had been the original manufacturer for Lexar parts all along. It is not a whole new company with no Lexar knowledge or experience, but their current manufacturer.
Flash memory, in a lot of people’s minds, is seen as the future in computer hardware and memory. Some have said memory cards will go obsolete and be replaced by flash memory. Technology is already a huge industry and is rapidly growing continuously, especially computer hardware and computer parts distribution. Not all people can afford to keep up with all the changes that are being made.
Some require all new products or changing out certain components, that is where computer parts distributors can be helpful. It can be frustrating when companies and manufacturers discontinue certain products, especially a little component such as memory cards, after them being around for so long. This is where computer parts distributors come in handy.
They can find these obsolete and hard to find parts that others do not have the capacity or resources to find to ensure companies and individuals do not have to pay thousands or even tens-of-thousands of dollars to replace their whole set-up. Computer hardware can be a tricky and expensive product to deal with, having an experienced computer parts distributor can take a lot of stress off a company or person.
As for now, the Nikon rumors statement regarding Lexar’s new owner, Longsys, discontinuing memory cards is incorrect. They may be hard to find at the moment or in the near future, but with the assistance of a computer parts distributor all that fear of exceeding a budget can be put to rest.
New slim wire connectors by TE Connectivity allow users to make fast and easy wire to wire or wire to board connections. The poke-in connectors accept wire gauges 18-22 AWG, with the 18 gauge wire rated up to 10A, and the 20/22 gauge wire rated up to 6A. Naked contacts allow a smaller footprint and cost savings over poke in connectors.
Poke in connectors are typically housed so they take up more space compared to TE slim wire connectors. Operating temperatures are rated from -40 to 105 degrees celcius, giving users an extensive line of application. Typically the connectors are used in telecommunication, building automation and security systems; But TE slim wire connectors are versatile and cheap, so even a hobbyist can use them in their printed circuit board projects.
Poke connectors provide maximum mechanical stability and wire retention due to their four points of contact in wire retention. Suitable for a variety of conditions these connectors allow users maximum flexibility while reducing cost. They also have the advantage of effectively eliminating the need for two piece wire connections with multiple solder points. There is no need for a secondary crimp assembly, just a single robust housing for one or more wires to make contact. Wires in all metal poke in housings are solderless and easy to replace and remove.
Depending on the type of poke connector removal may be as simple as twisting out the wire, unscrewing, or using an extraction tool. One thing poke connectors are not recommended for are products that experience vigorous movement or vibrations. Due to the nature of slim wire connectors, overtime they risk falling out because of the solderless connection. In these types of cases snap or solder connectors would be preferred.
