Sensors marketing consultant Roger Grace has issued his 2021 MEMS Commercialization Report Card. Do you agree with his conclusions?
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.
An inline jack for Hirose Electric’s IX series lets you construct panel-mount or extension cables.
The company known for circuit protection expands its switch offerings. Acquisitions take place all the time. Often, it’s startups being acquired by larger companies or companies being acquired by competitors. In the case of Littelfuse’s acquisition of C&K, it’s the merger of two long-established electrical/electronic component companies. The recently completed acquisition of C&K greatly enhances […]
A family of 1.35 mm board and cable connectors and cable assemblies from Samtec move mmWave signals.
Return loss can affect insertion loss, the amount of energy that reaches a receiver.
You probably don’t know it, but you’ve been referring to most D-sub connectors incorrectly for your entire career. Here’s how to get them right, but you’ll be speaking a language that few understand. D-Subminiature (D-sub) connectors, you find them in consumer PCs, industrial equipment, and even in networking equipment. They’re everywhere and manufactured by many […]
Understanding impedance in twisted-pair cables help you avoid signal problems.
It only takes 3µA of current to fail an EMC test, and a connected can produce that much.
Designation Number of pins (normal or high-density) Example configuration DA 15 or 26 DB 25 or 44 DC 37 or 62 DD 50 or 78 DE 9 or 15
Roger Grace Associates has announced the call for abstracts covering medtech/wearable applications for a full-day symposium preceding the Sensors Converge conference. Both the symposium and conference will take place at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, CA. The pre-conference symposium will address printed/flexible stretchable (P/F/S) and functional fabric (FF) Sensors and electronics from a […]
The student competition for IoT designs to mitigate climate change and reduce energy consumption is back on track for 2022. Registration opens April 4. After a two-year COVID-19 hiatus, Keysight Technologies has rebooted its IoT Innovation Challenge. The Keysight Innovation Challenge 2022 student competition challenges students to design IoT devices that sense our world and […]
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 […]
Tel-Tru Manufacturing has introduced an advanced line of 3-wire industrial RTD assemblies and temperature transmitters. These probes are designed for the applications common to food and pharmaceutical processing, refineries, chemical plants, water and wastewater facilities, breweries, dairies, HVAC, and the OEMs serving them. The temperature transmitters provide 4-20 mA or HART outputs. Standard RTD assemblies […]
