Technology Filtered by - Interconnect, Passives, Wire & Cable

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Interconnect, Passives, Wire & Cable sector. Advances in electronics are often fast-paced and innovative, so we know that as a design engineer you want to be kept up-to-date with current developments.

Below is a comprehensive list of all the latest electronics technology news from New Electronics.

Passives’ push for circuit integration

Integrated passives have a lot going for them. They take up less space on a PCB, they simplify design and they can, with the right processes shrink circuit tolerances thanks to closer component matching. The downside is that, as with semiconductors, volume is everything.

Reslient growth within space technology

After 60 years today’s space market encompasses not only traditional space companies but private ventures promising and, in some cases, providing launch services, space tourism, the commercialisation of near zero gravity and the introduction of constellations of low earth orbiting satellites delivering high speed connectivity and near real-time imagery.

Quality and reliability

In the military market the use of the correct connectors and cable solutions are critical and engineers are becoming ever more meticulous when it comes to their selection.

Making connections

PCB Design and Manufacturing Live opens its doors for a second year, welcoming a host of the industry’s PCB experts.

Improving reliability with cryogenics

Cryogenics is the study of the production of extremely cold temperatures and is a field of science that looks at what happens when materials, whether metals or gases, are exposed to very low temperatures.

Smaller, lighter and faster

Emerging technologies, whether that’s artificial intelligence, the use of big data analytics, or smart wearable devices and drones, are being appropriated by the world’s military in order to improve the effectiveness and capabilities of their armed forces.

Interconnector and cabling system to address design challenges

The growth in connectivity, with billions of devices now connected around the globe, means the pressure is growing exponentially on the infrastructure that supports the collection and dissemination of data. Whatever the technical pressures, customers expect a seamless level of service.

Maintaining lightning protection systems in wind turbines

Wind turbines can present a unique challenge for maintenance teams. Due to the turbine height and remote location, often in areas of high elevation, wind turbines are at heightened risk of receiving lightning strikes, particularly on the blades. Lightning produces an electromagnetic field that can damage conducting elements inside the blade, such as sensors or beacons and so for this reason turbines need protection from the direct and indirect effects that lightning current has on these structures. The lightning protection system for wind turbine blades usually consists of a metallic conductor cable that drives the current from the extreme of the blade to the root. Over time, this cable could become damaged, increasing the risk of loss of function of the turbine, leading to knock on effects on energy production and revenue.

Minimising costs for wire-to-board connections

Wire-to-board connections incur high costs when handling large quantities in mass markets. However, using the right connection technology this expense can be prevented. It's often worth considering the use of tried-and-tested technologies that enable cables and circuit boards to be connected at little cost.

Minimising costs for wire-to-board connections

Wire-to-board connections incur high costs when handling large quantities in mass markets. Using the right connection technology, however, can cut costs significantly and it is often worth considering using tried-and-tested technologies that enable cables and circuit boards to be connected at little cost.

An introduction to magnetic components

As electronics becomes more prevalent in our daily lives, most users are aware of only a few component types. An internet search will bring up semiconductors, microprocessors and transistors, but little about the magnetic components that are essential to make those devices function.

Pre-empting and overcoming obsolescence

New Electronics talks to Debbie Rowland, Sales Manager at Charcroft, an independent, specialist distributor based in the UK, about how obsolescence management has and is changing and how organisations can better prepare and plan for obsolescence.
