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 Hypertacģ contact system. This system uses a contact sleeve made out of wires that stretch around the pins when inserted, for many linear contact paths.
Earlier this year paralyzed IndyCar drive Sam Schmidt did the seemingly impossible -- opening the qualifying rounds at Indy by driving a modified Corvette C7 Stingray around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Wearables are changing the way we see ourselves. With onboard sensors that have access to our bodies, we are starting to know our physical selves like never before, quantifying our activity, our heart rate, breathing, and even our muscle effort.
Last week, the bill for reforming chemical regulation, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015, passed the House. If it or a similar bill becomes law, the effects on cost and availability of adhesives and plastics incorporating these substances are not yet clear.
