Hypertronics developed this interconnect in response to the medical trends toward less invasive procedures, for applications such as electrophysiology catheters, endoscopes and intravascular ultrasound. A sterilization cable for multiple mating cycles links to the interconnect through a single-use connector, and you can add embedded electronics. The connector can take as many as 100,000 mating cycles and has less-than 8mV contact resistance for small-signal contacts, using the Hypertac® contact system. This system uses a contact sleeve made out of wires that stretch around the pins when inserted, for many linear contact paths.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
