Demands for bandwidth-intensive, data-driven services are fueling a rise in compute, data storage, and networking capabilities. These rises put pressure on connectors and cable to deliver data at higher speeds with better signals and less heat.
RF connectors for mmWave are shrinking to accommodate higher performance and higher densities in 5G communication networks and devices. This FAQ begins by looking at today’s 4.3-10 coaxial connectors, which were developed to solve the performance issues inherent to the previous 7-16 connectors. It then examines how the technologies unveiled in the 4.3-10 are further […]
An inline jack for Hirose Electric’s IX series lets you construct panel-mount or extension cables.
Extending the capabilities of its field-proven M series, LEMO is introducing the new cutting-edge M series HY, a new model specifically designed for all applications requiring vacuum-tight connections in harsh environments. Its ultra-low leak rate, coupled with a wide operating temperature range, allows for unmatched performance in optical enclosures or high-altitude applications. This new addition […]
Just when you thought the trusty breakout box would fall victim to high-speed digital signals, it lives on
Schurter introduces its new 4750 series IEC strip-block, IEC connectors Type F, to meet the highly specific demands of power distribution in data centers. The strips provide a host of features including numbers of outlets in a strip, lighting possibilities, and terminal configurations for an unprecedented range of standard options. Choose from 2 to 7 […]
The latest high-speed transmission cables are benefitting from the use of optic-fiber and copper wire options, which are offering unique form factors and customizable solutions. Typically, data-transmission copper wire and optical-fiber conductors are round or cylindrical. The addition of silver plating on the copper conductor facilitates the high-frequency electrical transmission path. Fiber conductors are foundry […]
Contributed by Paul Pulkowski, Marketing Manager; Maciek Czerwinski, Director of Sales and Business Development; and Rick Lopez, Sales Engineer and Project Manager, binder USA The potential of 5G connectivity is nearly limitless with statistics that are difficult to imagine. Analysts predict that worldwide 5G connections will double in 2022 to 1.34 billion, and grow to […]
Connectors are essential components in radio frequency (RF) systems, especially in high-frequency applications like Gigahertz (GHz) 5G devices. Designers have a broad range of connectors to choose from, but there are a few key parameters to consider when narrowing down the choices. Six keys to selecting and integrating GHz connectors include physical size, frequency range […]
First developed in the 1960s and becoming more publicly available in the early 1970s, modular connectors were born out of necessity to provide a more simple, “modular” interconnection system for phone systems, data networks, and low-speed serial connections. During that same timeframe, the FCC developed a registration system for modular connectors, known as Registered Jacks […]
