New Interconnects and Advanced Technology are Moving Toward the Mainstream

Although 2023 is shaping up to be less than a stellar year for connector sales, new product development continues at a furious pace. Advanced technologies are accelerating the introduction of new interconnect architectures and devices. The term “connectivity” has become the mantra for the expanding universe of electronic devices that pervade our world today. DeliveringRead More

AI Everywhere

From high schools where students use artificial intelligence to complete assignments to chatbots that report the status of your lost luggage, AI is everywhere. AI seems like a new phenomenon, but this technology has been in development for 70 years. The term artificial intelligence was coined as early as 1950 and has been a subject ofRead More

High-Speed Solutions: Are Co-Packaged Optics Moving Toward Reality?

In high-speed data transmission, copper circuits introduce signal loss and distortion that increase with the length of the circuit. However, rapid advances in silicon photonics and a new generation of co-packaged optics are enabling designers to mount dissimilar chips directly on a common substrate, saving power and expanding bandwidth. The pace of progress in high-speedRead More

200 Years of Scientific Laws That Govern Electronics

For centuries, curious minds have formulated laws of physics, mathematics, and electricity. These scientific laws formed the foundations of the modern electronics industry. Humans have been aware of electricity for thousands of years. Lightning was thought to be a tool of the gods and although gods often laid down laws, they seemed unbound by them.Read More

The Numbers that Define Modern Electronics

As the data humans create and consume reaches once unimaginable volumes, a new nomenclature has been created to describe it. Carl Sagan, the eminent American astronomer, planetary scientist, cosmologist, astrophysicist, science communicator, author, and professor, invited people to imagine the huge number of stars in our galaxy. His famous quote, “billions upon billions of stars,”Read More

In New Product Development, Timing is Everything

Introducing a new product that satisfies a significant emerging need is the ultimate goal of every market manager. Finding that sweet spot with a product that works, and can be manufactured and sold at a profit, keeps design engineers up at night. Managers are imbued with a business school postulate that a product with aRead More

Moore’s Law Exponentially Changed the Course of Electronic Design

Connector Supplier marks the passing of one of the electronics industry’s great innovators. Gordon Moore’s foundational theory drove exponential advancements in semiconductor and circuit design, and charted the course for the miniaturization of connectors and other electronic components. Three years before Gordon Moore co-founded Intel Corporation in 1968, he plotted out a prediction for theRead More

OFC Celebrates High-Performance Optical Interconnects

Once again, OFC proved to be the premier showcase of high-performance optical and copper interconnects in communication and network applications. The 2023 edition of the Optical Fiber Communications Conference and Exhibition (OFC) roared back to normalcy after the muting effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 11,500 participants from 70 countries accessed the latest advances inRead More

VITA Embedded Tech Trends Returns

After a year off due to pandemic disruption, VITA’s open standards event returned to share the latest developments in embedded computing, high-performance interconnects, and standards that impact application development. Although 2022 marked the 40th anniversary of the VITA trade organization, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of its celebration and annual Embedded Tech TrendsRead More

Return to Normal: DesignCon 2023

After two years of pandemic disruption, this year’s high-speed trade show rebounded with an impressive array of smaller, cooler, and faster than ever interconnects. The 28th edition of DesignCon convened at the Santa Clara Convention Center January 31 through February 2, marking the return to its traditional venue and time slot. Concerns that recent techRead More

Pluggable Optical Transceivers Continue to Evolve

System engineers must balance priorities of reach, thermal management, panel density, backward compatibility, power consumption, multiple sourcing, and cost when selecting optical transceivers. Pluggable I/O transceivers in standardized configurations have proven to be a cost-effective solution to the challenges of creating high-speed optical networks. They have emerged as a leading interface for current and next-generationRead More
