CONNECTORS: TE Connectivity unveils rugged, nanominiature connectors for smart munitions and UAVs

TE Connectivity (TE) in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing nanominiature connectors with high reliability, low contact resistance, and wide operation temperature ranges for applications in space, smart munitions, missile defense, aircraft communications, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Nanominiature connectors are 10 times smaller in volume and about 10 percent the weight of a standard Micro-D connector with the same number of positions, TE Connectivity officials say. TE's nano interconnect technology also offers voltage ratings of 500 volts at sea and 500 mating cycles. The connectors offer high reliability and space- and weight-sensitive requirements.
