Choosing the right plating is critical to the success of a connector system. Plating affects the connector’s performance, life cycle, quality, and cost. A recent blog explains that pins and plating are usually the main cost drivers in board-to-board connector systems. That blog f...
As consumers, no one ever complains that their wireless connectivity is “too fast”. Global wireless carriers and network providers continue to push the limits of 4G LTE, but a next-generation wireless standard – 5G New Radio (5G NR) – is on the horizon. 5G technology will be 100x...
