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...
Everyone loves a good book. From Shakespearean classics to more modern-day masterpieces, a solid story can leave a lasting impression. While the VITA family of standards isn’t necessarily a book, it does have a rich history with a large impact.  As we learned in a previous blog, ...
With our last web update, we brought you several new additions to our on-site search, a new Microelectronics web experience, and our new 2017 product overview guide. In September, the updates to search came to a close (for now), we’ve added a few new content pages, and we began w...
I’ll start this blog with two questions. First, what are the major costs to build a connector? Second, which of these are the bigger costs?  In other words, what is the most expensive part of a connector? (Quick aside: I can’t speak for all connector companies when it comes to co...
