Customized surface mount
connectors from Advanced Interconnections
reduces board space by utilizing the perimeter of circular and other odd-shaped
SMT Perimeter Connectors are
created from customized FR-4 insulators on in-house driller/routing machines
and incorporate screw-machined, solder ball terminals (available down to 0.50 mm
pitch) on both the male header and the mating female connector (socket). Advanced
Interconnections says vertical integration including precision CNC machining
and hundreds of existing screw-machined terminal designs eliminate the need for
expensive tooling and set-up costs such as stamping dies.
design maximizes space when stacking circular printed circuit boards and
features an integrated keying/polarization feature. The light-weight, low
profile FR-4 insulator can be transitioned to a molded design to reduce costs
in production volumes. Typical applications include military and medical
To support prototypes and
small volume runs, Advanced says it can provide an affordable design and rough
sample for electrical and mechanical testing, typically in less than 5 days.
The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
Design teams are operating in a business environment that increasingly requires them to collaborate and share data across extended teams, multiple organizations, and widespread locations. Autodesk’s customers are looking for a solution that eliminates project bottlenecks, such as the time-consuming and error-ridden process of shuttling design reviews and revisions back and forth among team members.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
