Overview

In this webinar we show why more of today's complex, connected and modularized systems require a significant increase in the level of connector capability.

Internal systems that use multiple printed circuit board (PCB) and flex assemblies for sensors, cameras and multiple active module PCBs require connectors with improved signal integrity (SI) for speed and robustness in tight spaces. For example, the automotive industry has seen a significant increase in the number of engine compartment systems, HMI, radars and cameras, which all require assemblies and connectors with proven improved signal integrity and robustness for use in harsh environments.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn about the extensive product breadth available to meet the requirements of customers
  • Gain insight into the increase in modularity, where existing products are being used in new applications
  • Understand why, with miniaturization as the key to the micro solutions range, greater emphasis is being placed on managing space constraints
  • Gain insight into why the operational integrity of the connector is paramount to deliver performance, for example signal integrity and robustness to ensure fit for purpose applications
