LISLE, Ill. -- February 7, 2013

Molex Incorporated continues to tap into world-class interconnect expertise to
develop solutions for next-generation healthcare devices. Molex, along with
subsidiaries Affinity Medical Technologies LLC, Temp-Flex LLC and Polymicro
Technologies, will showcase a multitude of products that enable medical device
manufacturers to deliver more robust capabilities in increasingly smaller
design footprints. These interconnect products will be on display at MD&M
West, February 12 - 14, Anaheim Convention Center, CA, Molex booth 1983.

“By taking a careful look at the medical device industry, we have identified
numerous products that could benefit from our deep knowledge of interconnect
solutions,” said Anthony Kalaijakis, medical strategic marketing manager,
Molex. “Everything from diagnostic imaging, patient monitoring and healthcare
IT applications to minimally invasive and surgically implanted medical devices
can be enhanced with the addition of Molex’s advanced electronic design
solutions.”

Among Molex portfolios of innovative and reliable interconnect products on
display will be:

MediSpec™ Products (Developed at the Molex Temp-Flex Facility):

  *MediSpec ™ Micro Extrusion Primary Wires: Designed to meet tight tolerance
    requirements for invasive and implantable applications in the medical
    industry, the primary wires deliver optimal reliability in a range of
    gauges (36-52 AWG) and a wide selection of materials to support
    customization.
  *MediSpec™ High-Density Micro-Ribbon Cables: Ideal for invasive and
    implantable medical applications, the cables reduce costs on invasive and
    implantable medical equipment by replacing individual primary wires and
    flexible circuits with ribbonized, parallel wires.
  *MediSpec ™ Micro-Miniature Coiling (MMC): Designed for device designers in
    cardiac rhythm management, pacemakers and defibrillators, as well as
    implantable neurological pain management and stimulation, MMC technology
    features a continuous length coil enabling extrusion of micro gauge (50-26
    AWG class) wire at virtually infinite lengths.

MediSpec ™ Products

  *MediSpec™ Medical Plastic Circular (MPC) Connector System: Featuring the
    world-class LFH™ (low force helix) contact design, the product provides
    high-performance and affordability.
  *MediSpec™ Molded Interconnect Device/Laser Direct Structuring (MID/LDS)
    Capabilities: Combines the versatility of the two-shot molding process and
    the speed and precision of LDS capabilities, helping medical device
    designers integrate complex electrical and mechanical features into highly
    compact applications.
  *MediSpec ™ Hybrid Circular MT Cable Assemblies and Receptacle System: The
    industry’s first dual-platform MT/copper integrated connection solution
    combines both optical and electrical solutions in one cable assembly,
    streamlining the number of connectors required in medical equipment and
    devices. These cables also can be enhanced with our new VersabeamTM
    expanded beam MT that allow up to 5000 mate/demates for durable medical
    I/O applications.

Capacitive Sensing Products

  *Molex Capacitive Fluid Level Sensors: The patent pending sensor electrode
    design and embedded software provide a high-level of accuracy and are
    ideal for medical fluid management systems. The sensors feature flexible
    circuitry and can be easily mounted to any non-metallic container surface
    with pressure-sensitive adhesive. Molex experts will be highlighting the
    capabilities of this flexible sensor with a live demonstration at the
    show. A video to the demonstration can be found here.
  *Molex Projected Capacitive Touch Screens: Precise capacitive and resistive
    touch screen technologies can be customized to meet the needs of a wide
    range of applications

Additionally, Molex will showcase products from subsidiaries Polymicro
Technologies and Affinity Medical Technologies LLC.

  *Polymicro Technologies: A proven, leading manufacturer of specialty
    optical fibers, capillary tubing, side-fire and diffusers and completed
    fiber and capillary assemblies. The facility has ISO 13485:2003
    certification and an environmentally controlled Class 7 low bio-burden
    room.
  *Affinity Medical Technologies, LLC (Booth 1988): Specializing in
    customized interconnects for next-generation healthcare devices that
    include cables for electrophysiology (EP), ECG, dental, Holter and
    ambulatory monitoring; ventricular assist devices; disposable and reusable
    catheter cables and invasive blood pressure cables; bulkhead receptacles
    and device-to-device interface cables.
