Per Title, preference for official Nintendo technical specifications, if available, for the GBA Class D/Advance Game Pak cartridges. In mm/cm, preferably.

If no official Nintendo technical specifications, might someone please provide accurately measured dimensions?

Note: this refers to the dimensions of the plastic cartridge housing, not any internal components.

I've not been able to find any sources (official or otherwise) that list measurements of the cartridges. So I dug my GBA out of storage, dusted it off and took a measuring tape to a cartrige. The cartridges are approximately 57mm x 8mm x 35mm. My measurements may be off by about 0.5mm.

I compiled more detailed measurements into a graphic:

The notches and beveled edges are on both sides, and the finger grip at the top juts out 2-2.5mm from the width of the cartridge to aide in pulling it out of the system.
