Hmm, you mean like http://www.digikey.de/product-detail/en ... ND/1855737 ?freed wrote:Molex has some 170 pos .75mm pitch connectors. Quite expensive for a try (2 wires for 1 pin hack maybe?)
You might be onto something there =) The half pin pitch will make plugging an adventure because if you shift the card ever so slightly, the pins might end up shorting neighboring pads on the card, and the memory card edge dimensions don't match what's needed for the connector, so you'll have to line up the card by hand. To add insult to injury, my cards will need to be plugged slightly differently compared to the originals because of the slimming at the edge connector.
It won't be fun, but it might be worth a try. Certainly not something for the casual user though, which means no mass production, which means omg my poor useless hands which means PRICE.
