A new breed of cable and connector systems are helping to change tomorrow’s camera and surveillance technologies. Today’s charge coupled device, (CCD), technologies and CMOS chips are rapidly improving their higher resolution capabilities.
In order to meet significant challenges ahead, advanced electronics are being applied in high reliability systems for improved military and aerospace equipment.
To make life easier for the design engineer, Omnetics Connector Corporation has released its own set of standard space grade Bi-Lobes. These MIL-DTL-32139 Nano-miniature connectors are approved for space programs and inspected per EEE-INST-002.
Space technology electronic systems have evolved to meet the needs of long range performance in extreme physical and environmental situations. From launch to deep space travel, the demands can be daunting, considering that they cannot fail, and cannot be repaired.
Space technology for electronic systems has evolved to meet the needs of long-range performance in extreme physical and environmental situations. From launch to deep space travel, the demands can be daunting, considering they cannot fail and cannot be repaired.
Omnetics has acquired two new machines at our Precision Machining Division location. A Tornos CU2007 and a Tornos GT-32 were purchased for manufacturing rectangular and circular housings, respectively.
Circuits are constantly improving to serve new applications for a wide range of electronics, from portable robots to surgical monitoring, control circuits and on to key military systems.
Coax cables and connectors are used in a wide range of applications with various purposes.
As electronic miniaturisation becomes more prevalent throughout many industries, the Nano-D connector has proven to be a versatile interconnect style. These connectors originated in the military market, but they are now being used in unexpected and different applications than they were originally designed for.
Today’s design engineers have a strong directive when it comes to military electronics, and much of the emphasis seems focused heavily around SWaP. But what is SWaP and why is it so important?
SWaP cables and connectors are designed to offer small size, low weight and power to meet the exciting and dynamic growth of ruggedized miniature electronics.
Omnetics’ Polarized Nano (PZN) sized connectors minimize space while offering high signal integrity in today’s ruggedized applications. As our industry continues to focus on compact electronics modules, the miniature PZN series has gained more and more demand in the connector market.
In previous installments of this series, we described the importance of impedance. However, we haven't discussed how to determine the impedance of the path, or the variables that impact impedance. That is the focus of this installment.
Department of Defence budget cuts, sequestration and new cost saving methods have changed the purchasing mind set as it relates to military spending, giving many electronics manufacturers cause for concern.
Standard in-line configurations are overmolded using a black thermoplastic polyurethane material. Throughout this process we provide the right mix of waterproofing and abrasion resistance, ensuring our design meets the IP67 and IP68 standards designers have come to expect.
In the world of circular connectors there are thousands of styles, sizes, configurations and functionality types available.
These days, robotic system designs create multiple demands on connectors and cable systems to not only be smaller, but to also carry their weight in gold as it relates to overall ruggedness, reliability and design flexibility.
In previous installments of this series, we provided a general overview of the concept of impedance. In this installment, we shift gears to discuss differential signalling, the primary method that high-speed digital signals are transferred.
Omnetics Connector offers extensive overmolding design and manufacturing capabilities.
Omnetics' Nano Strip connectors encompass an ultra-low profile and rugged form factor, making them an ideal interconnect solution for a number of design challenges currently plaguing today's engineering community.
With many sizes and formats readily available in Omnetics COT's and standards library, your design can be assembled quickly and efficiently.
For years, standard D-sub-miniature connectors (MIL-DTL-24308) were the poster child in relation to overall ruggedness and reliability when it came to interconnect greatness.
Omnetics will be showcasing its rugged, highly reliable, lightweight, robust, miniature and ultra-miniature micro and nano connectors (1.27mm and 0.64mm pitch) and cable harnesses at the Defence and Security Event, DESi, from 15-18 September at the London ExCel centre.
Circuit boards continue to evolve and are required to perform more functions in a smaller footprint. Meanwhile, the physical number of wires needed for data acquisition and inter-circuit modules continue to escalate.
Designers are finding that connecting both signal and power systems into and out of their equipment is taking a large portion of their size and weight allowance.
Designers must move quickly to provide the circuitry needed for new miniaturised products that are being employed in today's ruggediaed portable electronics.
Omnetics delivers ruggedised standard connectors faster for reduced costs and to cut design time.
