Phoenix Contact introduces the XPC 1.5 connector, the first PCB connector to feature Push-X connection technology. Push-X uses a mousetrap-like design to create fast and tool-free connections for rigid and flexible conductors with or without ferrules. Push-X technology uses a contact spring inside the XPC PCB connector that catches the conductor and holds it securely […]
Hirose has expanded its miniature hybrid flexible printed circuit (FPC) to a board connector family to simplify mating and provide design flexibility. Combining space savings and a high-power capacity, the BK22 Series connector enables OEMs to reduce the size of portable devices without sacrificing power performance. The BK22 Series connector offers minimized contact resistance that […]
Hirose has released a multi-RF board-to-board connector that provides a size reduction of up to 71% compared to conventional designs. With the industry’s smallest width of only 2.2 mm, the BM56 Series supports multiple RF and digital signals with one board-to-board connector. By combining digital and RF signals into a single connector, the BM56 Series […]
Mill-Max Manufacturing Corp., Inc. announces the development of a new minimal insertion length contact, expanding our range of receptacles designed to work with shorter mating leads. The receptacles being introduced here are fitted with a new, beryllium copper contact clip which is characterized by an early engagement contact point, dual entry capability, low contact resistance, […]
Nicomatic and SnapEDA are releasing computer-aided design (CAD) models for over 8 million of Nicomatic’s connectors to help engineers bring their designs to life faster. A printed circuit board (PCB) is built with many small components, each of them with special characteristics and features. Previously, engineers had to design CAD models for each of them, […]
TE Connectivity is extending its time-tested 369 connector series with the new 369 shielded rectangular panel and PCB connectors for environments that demand ambient EMI noise protection. These connectors incorporate the benefits of the 369 series and create opportunities with additional applications such as ethernet, power distribution and mixed signal/power devices. “The combination of shielding […]
Test show a temperature rise of 30°C for current up to 8.5 A per pin.
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-, […]
