December 2013 – Has the traditional PCB backplane approach reached its data speed limits? Many in the electronic manufacturing industry think so, and search for an alternate means to achieve data rates and throughput that will take us into the next generation of information technology. High-speed cable technology may be the answer.
April 9, 2013 – Ruggedization involves modifying commercial cables to meet more extreme mechanical, environmental, and thermal hazards. Because requirements differ with applications — low-fire-hazard cables on aircraft or the use of non-halogenated materials on ships — one type of ruggedization does not fit all cables.
March 12, 2013—Cables are designed specifically for mobile video conference and telepresence robot applications.
October 9, 2012 – RFID solutions may provide a completely new approach to product lifecycle management and value creation in the cable industry. Alexander Schmoldt of Murata explains the latest innovations and how they can transform cabling infrastructure.
