Connectors should be a central focus for engineers in today’s network-centric and data-intensive markets.

Newark connectorsConnectivity is the lifeblood of today’s technology-driven world. The term has taken on many dimensions, from reference to the internet and data networks, to home appliances and devices of all sizes.

With continuing advances in technology, the connection between parts of any design is becoming increasingly important. Whereas design engineers could have previously relied on their “fall back” or favorite connector for all projects, demands for increased bandwidth and the need to eliminate crosstalk or environmental impact creates impetus for engineers to find new, more capable connectors to optimize their design and ensure the best results. Connectors have never had such an important role to play in the success of an embedded-system design.

Increasing Demands on Connector Integrity and Performance
