Molex Inc.'s Quick Mate Duplex (QMD) LC Optical Connector is a ruggedized connector solution
that includes a one-step, push-pull configuration that can be mated directly to
Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) transceivers. Featuring a durable
latching system, the QMD provides an automated solution for positive mating of
the LC connector to the SFP transceiver in applications, including Remote Radio
Heads or Closed Circuit TV. The solution is IP67 environmentally sealed,
ensuring moisture and dust protection in harsh environments. The QMD eliminates
the need for multiple steps to mate the internal LC duplex connector,
simplifying installation and maintenance.
Features for field installation:
design reduces potential damage to the optical connector due to impact with a
Z-axis travel of the internal LC connector for proper mating to the SFP optical
transceiver over a wide mounting tolerance.
and lightweight thermoplastic housing withstands extreme temperatures up to
design accommodates both multimode and single-mode fiber.
United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
