DC Data Centers: A Necessary Paradigm Shift for Sustainability and Savings

DC power supplies enable leaner, more powerful data center system architectures that — through skillful planning — can also mitigate total system cost. But first, we must make a paradigm shift. DC data centers Vast amounts of unused electricity simply disappear in data centers, lost to tedious, continuous, and ultimately unnecessary conversion and transformation processes. But Read More >>

Connectors Fly High on Commercial Aircraft

Thousands of new commercial aircraft are currently in production. They will contain lightweight, powerful, high-speed electronics systems that will enable connectivity on a level the skies have never seen. Commercial aircraft come in many shapes and sizes, from small executive jets to large, long-haul, wide-body planes that carry hundreds of passengers. Electronics are taking a Read More >>

Soldier Wearables and Heads-Up Displays Challenge Connectors

US Army leaders and their industrial partners are looking at new ways to equip dismounted soldiers with lighter weight, wireless, more capable, and more integrated electronic systems. The goal of a major revamp of the Adaptive Squad Architecture (ASA) is to harmonize both the individual dismounted soldier and the squad as an integrated combat platform, Read More >>

Four Factors to Consider When Specifying Connectors for Military Wearables

Choosing the right connectors for soldier-worn electronics can help improve soldier effectiveness and safety in the field. The average soldier in the field today carries between 87 and 121 pounds (39 to 59 kilograms) of gear and equipment, including an increasing amount of soldier-worn electronics. Improving battlefield effectiveness starts with ensuring every ounce of that Read More >>

How to Specify Heavy-Duty Connectors and Cable Assemblies for Harsh Industrial Applications

Designing and specifying cable assemblies for use in harsh environments presents a number of challenges. Industrial equipment can be subjected to harsh conditions, such as high temperatures, water, high humidity, particulate ingress, electromagnetic interference (EMI), vibration, and impact from close proximity to moving factory components. Over time, exposure to these conditions begins to impede assembly Read More >>

Too Hot to Handle: Protecting Wire and Cables from Fire

Fire poses real risks to sensitive electronics in data centers, building structures, vehicles, and other high-density electronics applications, especially as our reliance on connectivity continues to grow. New materials designed to protect wire and cables from fire improve overall system safety and safeguard critical connectivity functions. Heat presents challenges for electronics.
