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...
Emerging applications in 5G communications, mil/aero systems, high-speed data acquisition, phased-array radar and communication research will support faster data rates than current generation solutions. Developing and testing these high-performance applications requires advanced ...
The growth of system-on-modules (SOMs) in embedded computing presents a paradigm shift in embedded design. Legacy electronics systems typically leveraged discrete chip-down designs. The circuit designer was responsible for the selecting, designing and routing of the CPU, Memory, ...
