Faster power switches for aircraft safety: Going from milliseconds to microseconds - Blog

September 28, 2018
In a few milliseconds, electrical arcing in aircraft wiring can release thousands of joules of energy. This is enough to ignite wire insulation, pierce hydraulic lines, and compromise critical flight-control subsystems.

FPGA boards featuring NanoRF module released by Annapolis Micro Systems, TE Connectivity - News

July 12, 2018
ANNAPOLIS, Md. Annapolis Micro Systems and TE Connectivity teamed up to release three new high performance FPGA [field-programmable gate array] boards featuring the NanoRF module, which is designed to fit into the VITA 67.3 form factor and supports 70 GHz bandwidth, with more than double the RF contact density of existing VITA 67 solutions.

Trends in avionics connectors - Story

June 05, 2018
After World War II, aviation electronics evolved away from electromechanical components toward electronic and digital technologies, as seen in the development of fly-by-wire systems. That evolution continues today, as both military and commercial aircraft use increasing amounts of computing power and generate huge reams of data.

Expand your imagination with the surprising versatility of MIL-DTL-38999 circular connectors - Blog

May 30, 2018
Introduced in the 1970s and still widely used today, MIL-DTL-38999 circular crimp connectors are sometimes taken for granted. Their long history and general popularity make it easy to overlook the ability of the broad 38999-connector family to help engineers solve contemporary size, weight, and power (SWaP) challenges. In fact, the 38999-connector family continues to adapt new composite materials and form factors to meet demanding weight and size requirements, while design derivatives have evolved to support higher speeds and higher frequencies in this surprisingly versatile I/O connector family.

Higher-density RF is on your radar with VITA 67.3 standard - Blog

March 29, 2018
These days, multifunction radars handle functions from surveillance to jamming to fire control, and can track multiple targets in both short- and long-range threats. That means one thing for your active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar design--you need a lot more signal processing power.
