Connections between departments is a big thing we focus on here at ASAP Semi because that is the best way to keep things going well. As well as connections with suppliers to know we are getting good working, long lasting parts. We are always constantly trying to find new ways to connect ourselves to others to make things faster.
New developments to speed things in the cable and assembly industry are always being introduced to speed things up. Recently a new connector was design for high-frequency connection between the server, storage, communication systems, video, and switch. This data transmission can reach up to 56 Gbps. This was created by European provider, and they put out prototypes had excellent electrical properties. This new development will save on companies that deal with equipment suppliers and networks operators. It also saves a lot of energy because it erases active strengthening by serving with additional electronics. This equipment is constantly being tested to have upgrades and solve any problem it may have. Things are constantly changing and new generation wiring up is a short distance away.
Not only has the system could hold a stable-frequency up to 2m, it also can keep a passive network structure at 200 G. The data rate has increased to 56 Gbps because its use of complex PCB and specially developed high-speed cables. These passive cables are able to transfer date at a quick speed and safely. So, either the data per share is increased or data shares be added to generate the change from 200 G to 400 G. This is only possible if they continue to use passive components. Next the modulation method was changed from NRZ to PAM4 and this doubled the data rate in the same bandwidth. But this cannot be used until you upgrade your technology.
Leoni continues to be diverse by finding different solutions for transceiver connects and data rates. They are already moving to their next project of developing a prototype 400 G, which data transfer is at a high frequency and data volume of almost 12 CD’s. Constantly here at Aerospace Aviation 360, technology is being change to speed up the process because the fast the better.
Bicycles are increasing their popularity as our cities continue to overfill with traffic and pollution. With an emissions free benefit, bicycles are a quick and easy form of transportation in modern society. However, it can be challenging to transport children, pets, or extra baggage. Swedish Designer Jordi Hans invented an add-on solution that will make cycling more convenient- the SideBuddy side trailer. The SideBuddy is a multipurpose add-on side trailer that can be attached to both standard bicycles and new electric models. It offers space for up to three children (0-7 years) or up to 120kg of cargo. It is perfect for families, street sellers, tourist, commuters, etc.
Willing to support new and pioneering ideas, TR Fastenings Sweden was eager to hear more in depth about the SideBuddy when approached by the designer to become a possible collaborator. Eugen Kühnl, engineering and R&D manager at Tr Fastenings Sweden, commented:
“As a leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial components, environmental thinking is an area we are particularly interested in. In our opinion, the SideBuddy is a unique project with huge commercial potential and one we are delighted to support”.Utilizing its experience in assembly and fastener technology, TR Fastenings worked with Jordi from concept to final design of the SideBuddy. The team as a whole overcame numeral design challenges, such as finding a suitable way to connect the bicycle to the SideBuddy, steering issues, and most importantly, combining functionality and top quality design in a multipurpose, moving product.
Jordi Hans is hugely grateful to having TR Fastenings and their sponsors for all their support through the process of designing the SideBuddy. The SideBuddy has officially launched and is delighted with the feedback so far. Here at ASAP Semi we like to discover when there are new projects going on in the world because we know that they are going to use a lot of new parts. This can be a huge opportunity to get sales and able to market our brand to let customers know that we are a reliable supplier. Hopefully with our great service we can gain a lifetime customer.
Molex has recently introduced a range of Glow-Wire compliant connectors that delivers a higher power efficiency compared to its competing products in the market.Molex has been in the connectors manufacturing industry for 15 years and supplies a couple of the largest home appliances original equipment manufacturers in the world.
These connectors bring to the industry a superior quality manufactured by one of the most credible and experienced manufacturers in the market. This will collectively help meet the demand of the existing and future customers to support the sub-assembly process at the global manufacturing sites in the Far East, and assembly sites in the US and Europe.
The automotive industry has also shown interest in RAST connector which has become a growing market trend where a higher retention force is required for high vibration environments.Not only these connectors are suitable in a temperature range from -20 to 120 degrees Celsius for 2.0A applications, but they are even rated for applications that consume up to 4.0A but ranging from -20 to 60 degrees Celsius.
The material chosen for body insulation is Polyamide and possible deviants can accept single wires of an average diameter of 0.30mm2 on 2.5 or 5mm pitch, as well as 0.50mm2 on 5mm pitch.A 10M? insulation resistance was maintained at all times.
Connectors are mated securely due to the latch design holding a retention force of 30N which surpasses the automotive industry’s high vibrations environment. There are also several coding and keying options to avoid mis-mating during process of assembly.Along with all other RAST Molex connectors, they do meet the requirements of the Glow-Wire standard, where it has been tested for flammability at 750 and 850 degrees Celsius. .
On February 8 2017, Mick Elliott wrote an article for Electronic specifier talking about how there is a new MUSBR series USB-C connector from Amphenol. This new USB-C connector works across many different platforms such at smartphones, laptops, PCs, and tablets. Not only has this but the USB-C connector also worked with things such as power packs and chargers as all as industrial machinery.
Some of these USB-C connectors can handle up to 100W of power. These connectors usually can withstand a very high temperature as the housing is thermoplastic. The plates are made of nickel and are also stainless steel. The stainless steel is used as an added protection to the USB-C connectors.
What makes the USB-C more convenient than the regular USB cords is that the plug is reversible meaning it will connect no matter if upside down or right side up. The nickel plating uses a 2.57 mm diameter hold for mounting and comes in different colors such as gray and black.These USB-C devise from Amphenol will be available in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions. Amphenol is a major producer of electronic and fiber optics.
Gap and Overlap Type Wave Springs are used for a large range of applications. They are used for their reliability and preciseness.Smalley has released two sets of Wave Springs that when used together create growth within a cavity. Unlike the die stamped wave washers that usually cause binding or hang-up, these two wave springs are engineered to be more efficient.
The first is the Gap Type Wave Spring. As its name calls, it creates a gap between its ends. The other spring is an Overlap Type Wave Spring which provides a cycling action. As one of the springs is deflected, the O.D. of the Gap Type Wave Spring grows larger, the O.D. contracts the bore.
The springs come in 3 different sizes; the SSR Series, SSR-N Series, and SSB Series. Each is available in carbon and stainless steel, and vary in diameter from ½” to 16” diameter, 3.250” to 7.750” diameter, and 16mm to 600mm diameter. Each size allow the springs to work for a large amount of applications, whether it is for those in which space is limited or for simply ones that require little to no bearing noise.
