Sharing & Learning
“We seek to gain knowledge to provide mutual growth and understanding.”
To us, humility should cause one to want to share what they know/learn.
Below is content, related to the interconnect industry, we want to share

IN MEDICAL CONNECTOR ASSEMBLIES
Today’s medical devices are becoming increasingly sophisticated with smarter technologies that offer tremendous advances in patient treatment. “Use-limiting” is the employment of specific methods to prevent unsanitary or unsafe reuse of a disposable product. This eBook discusses the various use-limiting methods employed to help electronic medical device manufacturers ensure the safety of the end-user and protect their bottom line.

15 MINUTES TO UNDERSTAND THESE CRITICAL INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS
THINKING BEYOND COMPONENTS TO BUILD A SUCCESSFUL CONNECTION
EVERYONE NEEDS RELIABLE CONNECTOR PERFORMANCE, RIGHT?
WHY CONTACT FORCE AND MATERIAL ARE SO IMPORTANT
A reliable connection is critical for the performance of any equipment with separable electrical connections. An unreliable interconnect can result in intermittent operation, corrupted data, or complete failure, which can lead to customer dissatisfaction, excessive warranty expense, damaged product reputation, or even personal injury. To avoid these problems and other issues, it is necessary to understand and consider the many factors that influence a connector’s ability to perform reliably in the intended application.
7 FACTORS EVERY DEVICE ENGINEER NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT WIRE TERMINATION
The physical and electrical connection of a cable end that connects to another cable, connector or terminal—plays a key role in determining the successful outcome of interconnect design. Once a wire termination is accomplished, it typically will need to be protected by
THE HOW AND WHY OF CONNECTOR PROTOTYPING
Prototyping is a critical step in gaining valuable data about connectors. The more data that is gained early on in the prototype phase, the greater
MAKING THE RIGHT CONNECTION
As a designer or engineer of electronics, there will come a time to find out whether the connectors are the weak point in the design or whether you have chosen the correct contact mechanism to ensure the best connection. Identifying whether an interconnect is an OTU, a High Cycle Life or a Permanent connector will partially dictate what type of contact mechanism would be ideal for a project, but there are many more factors to consider when picking the right mechanism for you and your application. With this table, we’ve done some of that research for you. You’ll be able to compare and contrast a variety of contact mechanisms, how much the may cost, reliability with numerous matings and un-matings, and so forth.
