Combined Boeing and Airbus own about 50% of the airliner market worldwide. This rivalry is as old and competitive as Pepsi and Coke.
The Start of Airbus:
Back in the day, there used to be more competition. You used to hear the names of McDonnell Douglas, Lockheed, and even Convair. All these competitors were American aviation companies. With America dominating the aviation industry Europe felt the need to fight back. In 1967 German, British, and French governments decided to team up to build up their name in the field of aviation technology; together they came up with Airbus.
Europe at the time was well-known for making great jetliners. Trying to get ahead in the industry, Airbus decided to ride on the coattails of the well-made construction of their jetliners. Some of those jets include the Hawker Siddeley Trident and Sud Aviation Caravelle. Between Britain and France, they teamed up to build the Concorde jetliner. However, the strength of the American’s airliner industry was too strong, and Concorde ended up being a flop. Through many challenges of trying to find a gap in the industry they eventually created their A300s model. Heavily marketing their advanced and lightweight technology for the cockpit.
The A300 model was slowly starting to make sales; however, they were still unable to get into the US market. Airbus had to think fast. Their big breakthrough happened with Eastern Airlines. Airbus offered them a free six-month trial with 4 of their A300’s. At the end of the six months, Eastern Airlines was sold and bought 23 more of Airbus A300’s. By getting into the US market, Airbus finally became a real competitor for Boeing. Even though Airbus is relatively young in comparison to Boeing they have slowly become Boeing biggest rival.
Carlisle, which is a division of Carlisle Companies, recently introduced an updated CoreHC interconnection solution along with a new Card Edge Connectors contact system that will be teamed with its integrated line of high performing microwave cables and fast speed digital connectors. This was for Test and Measurement applications at the DesignCon 2018 Expo that recently took place at the beginning of this month in Santa Clara.
Carlisle's CoreHC interconnect cable assembly that can be directly attached is a test point system that is multi-channeled and is targeted towards high-density boards that have limited space. This cable allows for a reduction in trace lengths and higher signal integrity in comparison to boards that use the traditional SMA-type connectors. Roughly, there is around 4 times higher available bandwidth for signals that are in the same real estates as SMA connectors. The latest upgraded version of the CoreHC interconnects solution no longer has any soldiers, has a 1-piece interface for the PCB vertical and edge launch in a smaller footprint. This will allow for time to be saved and reduces overall costs since there is no longer any soldering to the board. This design is created for higher-cycle capability without the need to sacrifice signal integrity.
The new Card Edge Connectors contact system has been created for applications that are higher-speed and higher-density. It also has a mating surface area that is smooth, which will allow for a reduction in the wearing and tearing of contacts. This will also increase the durability and the life cycle of the contact system. This will allow for space and cost to be saved because the stub length will be minimized.

TE Connectivity (TE) and Credo had teamed up to demonstrate the future of networking technologies at DesignCon 2018. The companies held demonstrations of 112Gbps over an IO channel and over a backplane channel. Unlike many other attendees of the convention, who focused on discussion and theory, TE and Credo demonstrated performance on actual hardware.
The IO channel demonstration used TE’s OSFP (octal small form factor pluggable) IO connector with Credo’s 16nm, lower power, high performance 112G PAM4 SerDes technology to exhibit operation over a 10-inch printed circuit board (PCB) channel.
The backplane demonstration uses TE’s latest STRADA Whisper orthogonal backplane connector operating with a total channel loss of 20 dB at 28 GHz in a PCB-based direct plug orthogonal (DPO) architecture. Driven by Credo’s 112G PAM4 SerDes, the demo shows BER performance levels that fully enable the adoption of STRADA Whisper solutions for the next wave of networking equipment. The technology is possible through Credo’s innovative outlook on low power silicon being advanced to 112G SerDes.
DesignCon is an engineering-focused conference that brings together 5,000 professionals from high-speed communication and semiconductor communities for three days in Santa Clara, showcasing new technologies for advanced packaging, printed circuit board fabrication, connectors, cables, and related analysis equipment. This January, DesignCon celebrated its 23rd anniversary.
100 G Lambda Group is a worldwide group composed of multiple interconnection companies wishing to enhance their interoperability for optical transceivers. The 100 Lambda MSA is actively looking for members and already has a significant number of members that is a part of their group already. Companies such as:
Alibaba, Applied Opto Electronics, Arista Networks, Broadcom, Ciena, Cisco,Finisar, Foxconn Interconnect Technology, Inphi, Intel, Juniper Networks, Lumentum, Luxtera, MACOM, MaxLinear, Microsoft, Molex, NeoPhotonics, Nokia, Oclaro, Semtech, Source Photonics and Sumitomo Electric.
These companies represent innovation in their line of work and are choosing to create a newer and more efficient way to perform. The 100 Lambda MSA group has released the first looks at their latest project their 100 Gbps per wavelength PAM4 optical technology. This project is designed to focus on enhancing the ability to perform an optical interface using a 100 Gbps per wavelength PAM4 technology. Mainly to bring a sense of cohesiveness through out the industry with such companies that may use optical transceivers produced of different OEMs and may be opt’d with different configurations.
Not only does this configuration feature the 100 Gbe but have made a 400 Gbps configuration as well. These two options have increased the distances that they are able to perform efficiently at such as distances of 500 meters, that the interface is able to reach using a IEEE 802.3 Ethernet.
The 100G Lambda MSA has developed optical specifications for 100 GbE with reaches of 2 and 10 kilometers and for 400 GbE with a reach of 2 kilometers over duplex single-mode fiber.
With this latest innovation the companies wish to project themselves in the industry as the future of networking equipment. According to ConnectorTips.com the 100G Lambda MSA preliminary specifications will be complete and released by early 2018.

New purchasing agreement has been released with Conair for six new Q400 aircrafts from Bombardier Specialized Aircraft division. Conair is also one of the largest providers of aerial fight fighting aircrafts around the globe. With the latest purchase of the six Q400, it reissues the fact that Conair continuous to be the world largest owner of privately owned fixed-wing air tankers.
The entire project has an estimated price to be worth over $206 million US. Conair’s main priority for the purchase of this six-aircraft is to modify them with their proprietary Retardant Delivery System. The newly implemented system will allow for a more comfortable experience despite the newly implemented traits along with modifications in the cargo space, combi and medivac have been enhanced as well.This innovative retardant system is one of its kind with its agility to be integrated and removed very efficiently in times of emergency without the remainder of the newly composed cabin space to be jeopardized.
Conair's Chairman & CEO, Barry Marsden explains the efficiency of the Q400 aircraft by stating,” The Q400 Multirole’s versatility delivers optimal value by accommodating year-round service in passenger, cargo, combi transport, medivac, emergency response, surveillance and patrol without compromising state-of-the-art air tanker capabilities.”The Q400 Multirole is a threat to its kind in the industry by being able to perform short takeoffs, fly at speeds of 667 km/hr and can maneuvers its self out of “unprepared strips.”
Bombardier has the pleasure of adding the newly modified Q400 Multirole aircrafts to their extensive list of over 1000 custom aircraft that are being operated all over the world. Along with their impressive lists of customers, Governments worldwide have made Bombardier their top choice for military, intelligence, and other military division aircrafts.
