Navigating the complex tapestry of cable assembly manufacturing is akin to completing an intricate jigsaw puzzle. At first glance, a jigsaw puzzle can be daunting, a kaleidoscope of colors and pieces. Some are edge pieces, easily identifiable, while others, with their myriad of shapes and hues, challenge even the most seasoned of puzzle enthusiasts.
In the world of high-performance electronics, such as military and aerospace systems, the design and functionality of cables play a crucial role in ensuring reliable and high-speed communication, power transmission, and data transfer.
At the conclusion of our webinar, Adding Keypads and Cables to Your Injection-Molded Enclosure, we had several questions submitted to our presenter, Steven J. Goodman, User Interface & Cable Assembly Product Manager at Epec. We have compiled these questions into a readable format on our blog.
In today's fast-paced engineering world, efficiency and productivity are key factors in meeting project deadlines and maintaining a competitive edge. One practice that has gained popularity among engineers is buying kitted wire harnesses. By bundling together pre-assembled wire harnesses, kitting offers a range of advantages that can simplify the wiring process.
Getting your product to market fast and staying within budget is the obvious goal for all new development projects. Many of these projects require some sort of assembled circuit board, battery, or touchscreen, and therefore they all will need some type of custom electrical cable or wire harness.
In terms of electronics, everyone agrees that having to deal with component obsolescence is taxing on resources and costs companies’ enormous amounts of time and money. The task of finding replacement options for an obsolete component is not an easy one and is usually spearheaded by engineering and purchasing departments.
D-subminiature connectors, commonly referred to as D-subs, are a class of interconnects that are widely used in the electronics industry for both commercial and industrial applications. The name "D-sub" comes from the shape of the connector shell which looks similar to the letter "D” when viewed from the front face.
If you had to make a list of all the fields that rely on modern technological advancements to function on a daily basis, healthcare and the medical industry would be right at the top.
Apple's lightning cable is a proprietary connector type that is used on various Apple devices like the iPhone, the iPod Touch (starting with the 5th generation), the iPad, the iPad Mini, and the iPad Pro. It was originally released in 2012 and replaced the 30-pin connector that formerly shipped with these devices.
Mil-aero devices live in a special place in the worlds of design and engineering. These are devices that are often subjected to extraordinary environments. They have extreme requirements, and they often must function in the harshest environments of the world.
