USB Type-C promises to make all other cables and connectors redundant as it delivers power and high-speed data connectivity combined, but there are a few things to look out for.
PIM is a series of resulting signal harmonics and distortions that emerge between two or more interacting signals when transmitted through passive components such as cables and connectors, causing unwanted interference and degradation of wireless communications.
RS Components has added more than 600 Amphenol FCI connector and cable assembly product lines to its portfolio.
The ODU AMC High-Density miniature connector series features a diameter of less than 10 to 18.5 mm and a pole density of up to 40 contacts with different versions for power (up to 15 A), signal and data transmission (USB 3.0 at a rate of 5 Gbps), providing high performance and functionality in a compact package.
Advantech has launched its full range of IoT gateways to fulfil a wide array of application environments. The gateways provide a foundation for connecting devices seamlessly and securely, delivering trusted data to the cloud and adding value through analytics.
The ODU AMC is designed for military and security technology fields. The miniature connector has a long service life of more than 5000 mating cycles, even under severe environmental conditions such as water, dirt, salt and temperature.
Backplane connectors with large moulded housings existed in the late 1980s but were expensive and very difficult to make. True position for all of the pins had to be accurate or the connector could not be placed easily on the boards and mated. Teradyne Connector Systems found a solution.
Molex's latest USB-C connectors and cable assemblies target a wide range of electronics applications in consumer markets as well as automation and control systems, automotive and telecoms and data communications sectors.
