Range and Charge Time are Key in Battery Management System Design

Weight, vibration, and temperature are significant challenges in meeting the goals of long range and fast charging in electric vehicles and battery management system design.  Range and charge time are the main concerns of makers and buyers of electric vehicles (EVs) — how to go farther on a single charge and how to charge quickly.Read More

What are N-Type Connectors?

Meet the Connector: N-Type Connectors N-Type connector, or simply N connector, is an RF connector used to join coaxial cables. It was invented by Paul Neill of Bell Labs in the 1940s and was subsequently named for him. This medium-size, threaded, waterproof connector was one of the first that could carry microwave-frequency signals.    The N-TypeRead More

Meeting the Connectivity Challenges of AAM & eVTOL

AAM and eVTOL designs are being developed and executed quickly. In this start-up environment, suppliers must maneuver quickly to provide solutions.
