Microminiature Connectors: Introduction
- Microminiature connectors are designed for use in several industrial applications wherein minimum dimensions need to be achieved. These connectors are developed and tested as per MIL specification standards such as MIL-DTL-83513 and MIL-DTL-38999.
- Apart from small size, microminiature connectors have features including light weight, high reliability, and efficiency. Also, the circular design configuration of these connectors provides mil-spec performance that can withstand harsh environments.
- Moreover, key manufacturers have designed microminiature connectors with different design configurations and interconnect types, such as board-to-board, wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, FFC/FPC, I/O, and memory card.
- Microminiature connectors are perfect for use in any application wherein space is limited. Thus, these connectors are largely used in several applications such as hand-held units, aircraft frames, mobile devices, and medical devices.
- Furthermore, microminiature connectors is a preferred choice for use in satellites and surveillance equipment
