Technology Spotlights 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.

Broad range of devices for switching signal-level loads

TE Connectivity's Relays and Contactors include a variety of relay types, including high-voltage contactors, power PCB relays, solid-state relays, general-purpose relays, force-guided relays, and more. The product line is designed to serve a variety of demanding, high-performance applications.

Omniball™ Spring-Loaded Contacts

The unique Omniball™ spring-loaded contact (patent pending) features a rolling ball interface, enabling mating components to engage in lateral, rotational, and angular alignments while providing optimal electrical, mechanical, and structural reliability.

The smallest, lightest, mixed-layout connector

Discover maximum space saving with combined signal and power in the new Gecko-MT connector from Harwin. When your application must not fail, connect with confidence. The next generation high-rel connector is tested to extreme levels of G-force and temperature for maximum performance in harsh conditions.

New! Rugged, Solder-Cup Spring-Loaded Connectors

The new 868 series spring-loaded, and target connectors feature solder-cups to accommodate wire and cable attachment. With flanged insulators and fastening options, these connectors are ideal for mounting into product housings in docking stations, cable terminations, heavy duty quick connects and panel mount equipment.

Structured Cabling made easy

Assembly routine often encounters the unexpected. A damaged cable segment needs to be repaired quickly but you do not necessarily want to lay a new cable segment just yet. The existing network has to be extended or an additional device integrated but you do not have an assembled cable at hand. The perfect solution for these situations is now available: field-assembly data networking components from Telegärtner.

Gecko Screw-Lok now with Reverse Fixings and Cable Assemblies for Design Flexibility

Gecko Screw-Lok connectors resists extreme shock, vibration & temperature, offering a secure and robust connection in demanding applications. The range of miniature 1.25mm pitch connectors includes Ready-To-Use Cable Assemblies, Metal Backshells for strain relief & RF shielding and now features Reverse Fixings for ultimate design flexibility with the same high-reliability.

Connectivity for all dimensions

Phoenix Contact presents a new product series of robust board-to-board connectors. The Fine Pitch series includes shielded connectors with a pitch of 0.8 mm and unshielded versions with a pitch of 1.27 mm.

The Cell IQ Family

Ever-increasing amounts of data have made further developments of global mobile networks essential. The development of 5G is creating new and more diverse tasks for the mobile communications industry. Telegärtner has developed the Cell IQ Family to easily meet these challenges. This family comprises of three products: 4.3-10, 2.2-5 and 1.5-3.5 series, which cover the complete spectrum of MCO requirements, delivering maximum power in any size.

Connectivity for all dimensions

Phoenix Contact presents a new product series of robust board-to-board connectors. For the market launch, the Fine Pitch series includes shielded connectors with a pitch of 0.8 mm and unshielded versions with a pitch of 1.27 mm.

Parallel Board-To-Board Connectors

These new sockets and headers are an excellent choice for parallel board-to-board or board-to-component applications where vertical board stacking is not an option, such as in LED lighting systems which often employ daisy-chained PCB’s to minimize overall package height.

New metric cable splitters with IP68 rating

Telegärtner has presented completely reworked cable splitters for up to 48 fibres. The new splitters are extremely robust and now feature a metric thread. IP68 versions are also suitable for outdoor applications in harsh environments.

The Rail Distribution Box – Train Approved FO Splice Box – Ruggedized protection for any situation

In rough conditions, occurring in industrial or outdoor areas, high quality fiber optical connections are needed despite the mechanical and climatic stress. For this purpose, Telegärtner developed the train approved distribution box, called RDB. Due to its tested reliability against vibrations, shocks, heat, coldness and humidity, the RDB is perfectly suited for use in harsh environments.

Passive breakthroughs from Kemet & Charcroft

A first-to-market KEMET AEC-Q200 polymer electrolytic to 150°C, an easy press-fit aluminium electrolytic, and Base Metal Electrode ceramic capacitors qualified to MIL-PRF-32535 for high-reliability applications, are sampling now from Charcroft.

Additional talks from, Analog devices, ARM and others ensure you'll acquire knowledge to take, apply and succeed at work. Book your free ticket now.

Solution for Permanent Link and Channel Class I

The trend to ever-higher transmission rates is growing due to rapidly increasing use of intelligent mobile devices. That puts more and more pressure on backbone networks and data centres to handle a literal flood of data. The required latency of future applications such as in traffic infrastructure and its inherent traffic leads to a situation where data rates of ten gigabits per second offered by the 10GBASE-T variant of Ethernet are in many cases simply no longer sufficient.

The Pulse of Progress

In this article the specialists at Jauch Quartz give you an insight into best practices in frequency control, current market conditions and what’s to come in the future.
