Miniaturized High-Reliability Interconnects Fuel Medical Device Advancements

Smaller medical devices need miniaturized interconnects to achieve greater functionality and portability in medical diagnostic, monitoring, and surgical equipment. Patients want home-based monitoring, fewer clinic visits, lower costs, and shorter hospital stays. Physicians want more precise data and mobile care for difficult to reach or underserved regions. These trends have driven demand for compact, portableRead More

Nano-Circular Connectors for Sensor Designs in Rugged Applications 

As we place sensors in more rugged environments and extend their uses beyond flat mounting applications, nano-circular connectors and round cable rise to lead in solution-based design strategies. New data-acquisition and information-monitoring technologies have given rise to a completely new field of high-speed image detectors, material sensors, pressure monitors, and even inertia monitors. Today, drones,Read More

Miniature Connectors Empower Military Robotics

Robotics have become essential tools for the military. Miniature connector and cable interconnections specified for military robotic applications can be selected or designed to create a system that can endure unique conditions and hazards while providing reliable performance. Robotics are increasingly essential to military operations. They provide early surveillance information to help commanders plan strategies.Read More
