Only connect: Small is beautiful
Welcome to another post in the series by Nick Locke, of Nicab Ltd, who has over 15 years experience in the electronics manufacturing industry specialising in interconnection cable assembly.
Molex is known for driving innovation, having big ideas on small connectors. Its 0.40mm Pitch Micro IDT Coaxial Wire-to-Board Connector System is crazy small!
It’s primarily designed for compact electronic products such as mobile phones and LCD monitors.
While this technology has been around for a while what is new about this product is that it is designed to be used in environments with high movement where FPC Cables will not be able to handle the harsh environment.
What is great about this product is that it proves that in ever smaller devices there is still no better way to transferring signals than cable.
