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 Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
