December 2013 – Has the traditional PCB backplane approach reached its data speed limits? Many in the electronic manufacturing industry think so, and search for an alternate means to achieve data rates and throughput that will take us into the next generation of information technology. High-speed cable technology may be the answer.
September 2013 – Manufacturers have slowly adopted new methods of connector termination only after years of process verification providing designerswith multiple options that feature cost-effective manufacturabilty as well as a high degree of long-term reliability.
September 2013—The JAE SM3 Series card-edge connector is ideal for high-speed applications.
MEMS and FPC: Good Things in Small Packages Connector miniaturization has enabled device manufacturers to give consumers robust devices that aggregate processing power, space, and weight savings to operate all day from packages small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. Users have come to expect thinner cell phones, lighter laptops, and tablets that canRead More
August 20, 2013—FCI successfully demonstrated the BERGSTAK 0.8mm mezzanine connectors’ capability to support PCI Express 3.0 signaling at 8GT/s.
DIN’s proliferation beyond the telecom world can be attributed to a few factors, most important of which is its adoption as part of the VMEBus standard, also known as Eurocard.
May 21, 2013—Yamaichi’s European Design Center provides design, testing, and analysis services for interconnectivity products and systems.
FCI has developed a hermaphroditic board-to-board connector that can be rotated to any angle between +90° and -60°. The RotaConnect rotatable board-to-board connector offers significant design flexibility, as the same connector is capable of providing perpendicular, co-planar, or angled interconnect solutions. The hermaphroditic board-to-board connector, which mates to itself, can also be placed anywhere onRead More
AVX Corporation has further expanded its 9159 Series of SMT connectors with the addition of IDC wire-to-board plug-and-socket connectors. The new 9159 Series IDC connectors facilitate the easy, reliable, and cost-effective termination of 22-24AWG discrete or cabled power and signal wires into standard 9159 Series two-piece connectors systems, maximizing their flexibility by providing them withRead More
Molex Mini-Fit Product Expansion Molex Inc. expanded its range of customization, modification, and extension (CME) capabilities on variations of its Mini-Fit product offerings and KK system of “building block” connectors for small-pitch, high-current, high-density applications. CME versions of the Mini-Fit and KK interconnects feature multiple power, circuit count, configuration and size parameters for optimal flexibilityRead More
July 10, 2012 HARTING is now offering a cable connector for the DIN 41612 3C and 3R types. The new connector is made for for smaller printed circuit boards or sub-assemblies in particular, thanks to its space-saving design. Three available outlet ports can be opened up by breaking through the external walls as required. TheRead More
