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.
A full line of standard and custom electrical and electronic connectors and terminals for gasoline and battery-powered lawn and garden equipment that are manufactured in the USA to eliminate OEM delivery lead time issues has been introduced by ETCO Incorporated. ETCO Lawn & Garden Equipment Products include spark plug terminals, boots, heavy rings, PCB-, insulated-, […]
A family of 1.35 mm board and cable connectors and cable assemblies from Samtec move mmWave signals.
There are several options when it comes to terminating wires for rectangular connectors. Axial screw termination is one of the most common methods in the industry. This method is suitable for field installation or maintenance because not only is the connection stable and secure, but also either a common slot screwdriver or hex tool is […]
As part of its proven high-performance, high-density SMP and SMPM series, Amphenol SV Microwave has introduced pre-tinned, de-golded PCB connectors. The are now available from Interstate Connecting Components, division of HEILIND MIL-AERO. These connectors utilize a unique and proprietary method for removing gold in the solder area of RF connectors. The automated de-golding process mitigates undesirable remnants […]
Hirose’s BM50 series has been selected as an Innovation Award Honoree for CES 2022, the Consumer Electronics Show held annually in Las Vegas. The CES Innovation Awards internationally recognizes noteworthy products in 28 product fields based on the following criteria: product quality, design aesthetic, value provided to users, uniqueness and newness of product specifications, and […]
Expanding its portfolio of board sockets, Harwin has introduced additional sizes for the popular Sycamore Contact range. These 6A current rated surface-mount PCB sockets allow engineers to accommodate different designs, placing individual sockets freely on a board without the constraint of connector housings. Two additions complement the existing 3.8 7mm length sockets, which accept 0.8-1.3mm […]
RF and high-speed digital signals have brought on the development of new liquid crystal polymer materials used in connectors, PCBs, and other interconnects. Liquid crystal polymers (LCPs) are experiencing a surge in demand resulting from high-speed communications technologies, particularly fine-pitch components such as high-frequency connectors, board-to-board connectors, and low-pass insulation supporters, or dipoles on active […]
By Ruud van den Brink • Product Manager for Industrial Communications • TE Connectivity Industry 4.0 is all about enhancing efficiency and productivity. Part of these improvements can be realized in a more optimized communication infrastructure in industrial networks. Modern-day industrial automation systems are complex. Different layers in the network use different communication standards. A […]
GCT’s new edge mount USB Type-C Plug provides design engineers with greater options for docking solutions and plug-in external dongle devices. The USB4155 is mid-mounted to make the best use of the PCB thickness within the profile of the connector. The slim 2.9mm profile offers features on the external metal case that provide excellent EMI […]
