A CDE Definition
A telephone or network jack that slides out from the exposed end of a Type II PC Card. Developed by U.S. Robotics for its modems and network adapters, XJACK connectors were used by other vendors when PC Card slots were commonly found on laptops. See PC Card dongle.
PC Card dongle
A device used to couple a network or telephone cable to a PC Card (PCMCIA). The dongle provides a way of adding RJ-45 and RJ-11 jacks to cards that do not have the jacks built in. Since PC Cards are thin, the cards that contain the jacks either have them protruding beyond the card or use an XJACK connector, a thin jack that slides in and out of the card. See hardware key.
