The increasing impact of data speed and miniaturization on rugged connector selection - White Paper (February 2018)
Connector selection has morphed from the old standby “how many contacts do you need” to a much more serious challenge for design engineers who need to find ways to pump increasing amounts of data through smaller and smaller spaces. With usability experts adding their ideas into the mix, there are additional challenges with connector selection that often mean figuring out how to run electrical and signal in one connector/cable combination without interference. All this creates new priorities when you start your connector selection process. With that in mind, we’ve updated our step-by-step rugged connector selection guide for the new realities engineers face today.
