Omnetics Connector Corp. in Minneapolis is introducing a hybrid micro/nano connector designed to reduce weight. The new product combines either standard nano (.64-millimeter pitch) or standard micro (1.27-millimeter pitch) insulators and contacts in a CNC-machined metal shell, enabling engineers to combine power and signal processing in a compact area. The nano contacts can carry as much power as 1 amp per contact, while the micro contacts can handle 3 amps. The same nano and micro pins and sockets are used in the company's QPL-qualified MIL-DTL-32139 and MIL-DTL-83513 connectors.
