The rotating cam member is provided with a first broad protrusion and a second narrow protrusion alternately at an outer circumference of the shaft portion. When inserting the card, since the rotating cam member turns by a predetermined angle so that the first protrusion faces the starting end of the passage groove, the slider is locked. When pushing the card again, since the rotating cam member turns by a predetermined angle, the second protrusion faces the starting end of the passage groove, the card can be ejected.05-27-2010
20100130040Connector - A connector has an ejection mechanism operable to eject a card having a notch along a length direction, at least one contact, a housing for holding the at least one contact, and a cover for covering the housing. The ejection mechanism includes a movable unit that is movable between a holding position, at which the movable unit is located when the card has been inserted in the connector, and an ejecting position, at which the movable unit is located when the card has been ejected from the connector, along the length direction during insertion and ejection of the card. The movable unit includes a lock portion movable along a width direction perpendicular to the length direction as well as along the length direction when the movable unit moves along the length direction. The lock portion is located within the notch of the card to prevent ejection of the card when the movable unit is located at the holding position. The cover and the housing define a cavity that can receive at least part of the card and an opening for allowing the card to be inserted into the cavity. The connector also has a width-direction movement regulator configured to prevent the lock portion from moving in the width direction when the movable unit is located at the holding position.05-27-2010
