1. A non-contact power and data connector for coupling a removable electronic module with a host device, comprising:

  • a first transformer core part having multiple poles and being adapted for mounting on a host device;

    a second transformer core part having multiple poles and being adapted for mounting on a removable electronic module, said multiple poles of said first and second transformer core parts being configured to mate;

    a first power winding means on said first transformer core part for causing power flux to traverse through certain of said poles of said first and second transformer core parts;

    a second power winding means on said second transformer core part for coupling with said power flux;

    a first data winding means on said first transformer core part for coupling to data flux traversing through certain of said poles of said first and second transformer core parts; and

    a second data winding means on said second transformer core part for coupling with said data flux, said first and second data winding means being so wound in relation to said poles and said first and second power winding means that said power flux mutually cancels in those poles that couple data flux between said first and second data winding means.
