AVX Releases A New Series of Tall Board-to-Board Stacker Connectors

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (January 25, 2018) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of passive components, interconnects, sensors, and control solutions, has released a new series of tall board-to-board stacker connectors. The new 00-9148 Series tall stacker connectors are cost-effective, reliable, and robust; exhibit excellent resistance to shock and vibration; and help reduce tolerance accumulation in a variety of demanding applications across the automotive, consumer, medical, and industrial markets. The single-piece connectors also reduce assembly time and shorten BOM lists, and feature a double-row design with an 8mm (±0.2mm) board-stacking height, a 1mm pitch, and eight positions, each rated for 1A continuous current.

New Vertical, Poke-Home, Wire-To-Board Connectors for Discrete 18-22AWG Wire

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (December 15, 2017) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of passive components and interconnect solutions, has extended its range of vertical wire-to-board (WTB) connector solutions with the release of the new 00-9296 Series single-position, vertical, top-entry, poke-home connectors for discrete 18-22AWG solid or stranded wire. The new 00-9296 Series connectors deliver simple, robust, repeatable, and cost-effective wire terminations designed to replace both labor-intensive and inconsistent hand-soldered connections, as well as costly, two-piece connector solutions in perpendicular, low-pin-count industrial, commercial, smart grid, and SSL applications with limited PCB space and conditions that make it difficult to achieve repetitive and reliable processes and maintain solder integrity.

Analog Devices Offers Industry’s First Intrinsically Safe Digital Isolation Certification to Enable Design in Hazardous Areas

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) today announced the availability of the industry’s only certified intrinsically safe (IS) digital isolators based on IEC 60079-11:2011 standards. The 4-channel ADuM144x series digital isolators with iCoupler® technology are ideal for designing electrical equipment for use in hazardous areas. When compared to traditional optocouplers, ADI’s IS-IS certified digital isolators simplify circuits by reducing required PCB board space along with component cost and design complexity as multiple diodes and resistors are no longer needed.
