A set of five connectors that connect board-to-board, board-to-backplane, and board-to-cable connections address signal-integrity issues not present at lower data rates. Every time digital data streams make a speed jump, new problems in physics emerge that did not exist at lower speeds. Now that 224 Gb/sec PAM4 links are in development, engineers must deal with […]
A family of 1.35 mm board and cable connectors and cable assemblies from Samtec move mmWave signals.
You probably don’t know it, but you’ve been referring to most D-sub connectors incorrectly for your entire career.
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 […]
Harwin has expanded its Archer Kontrol board-to-board industrial connector portfolio to meet cable-to-board requirements. Based on customer feedback, the company has just introduced off-the-shelf IDC cable assembly options to accompany the existing discrete connector components. These are available now direct from stock through Harwin’s global network of distributors. On each of these assemblies, a ribbon […]
Harwin has extended its Gecko-SL (Screw-Lok) product range to include horizontal male connectors. Specifying the male throughboard connector at 90° to the PCB offers additional layout flexibility to maximize space above the board. Connectors can now be located at a PCB edge, routing a mated cable sideways outside the PCB stack. A key application to […]
