Miniature Nano-D COTS Connectors Offer High Density Packaging
Circuit boards continue to evolve and are required to perform more functions in a smaller footprint. Meanwhile, the physical number of wires needed to data acquisition and inter-circuit modules continue to escalate. As data speeds rise, differential signal routing too increases, as do the number of high speed drawin wires necessary. While this continues to be a design challenge for today’s modern day designer, this growth in wire count can easily be solved using Omnetics’ Nano-D connectors wired in a format to account for these factors.
Performance testing has proven that higher speed digital signals run more efficiently when some basic design rules are applied.
Most applications have high shock and vibration requirements that the Nano-D passes with flying colours. Omnetics has been a certified supplier to the military specification MIL-DTL-32139 for Nano-D connectors since 2007, and is well experienced in assembly performance and connector design.
With many sizes and formats readily available in Omnetics COTS and standards library, your prototype design can be assembled quickly for initial testing and certification. Standard contact sizes include; 9, 15, 21. 25, 31, 37, 51, 65 and 85 pins, all at 0.25″ pitch.
Nano-D connectors although small, have proven their toughness and reliability time-in and time-out within circuitry used in weaponry, robotics, future soldier systems as well as unmanned vehicles technology. Other popular uses include; portable surveillance, mission critical satellites as well as down-hole drilling tools that reach and operate in temperatures exceeding 200 degrees centigrade.
