2020: A New Decade of Innovation

Remember 2010? The first iPad came out that year. That product transformed the way we work, play, and pay for coffee, and it inspired touch-screen technologies across every industry. It’s just one of the innovations Connector Supplier covered in the 2010s — a decade in which connectors became smaller, more powerful, more flexible, and more ubiquitous. What will the 2020s bring? We are betting that the Internet of Things, 5G, automation, and battery innovations will inspire even more world-changing designs. In the next decade, we’ll also talk more about connector-adjacent technologies, including cable assemblies, sensors, and antennas. Check in with us every Tuesday to see how these connectivity products are changing our world.
