High-current Equipment Case Study
The introduction of energy storage systems, to store clean energy and UPS to prepare for power failures, is progressing rapidly. In recent years, there have been an increasing number of cases where high currents are being handled by various equipment, such as AGVs and robots.This chapter introduces challenges and solutions commonly encountered in high-current equipment.
5G mmWave Antenna Module Connector
In order to support millimeter-wave band communication, which is expected to gain momentum in the future, installing an AiP (Antenna in Package: Module with Integrated 5G mmWave Band Antenna) was being considered. However, it was difficult to find the optimum connector for connecting to the main board.
Optimal Board-to-Board Connector for Integration of Automotive ECUs
Automotive equipment manufacturers are developing new integrated ECU’s driven by hardware optimization and the increased features supported in vehicles. In order to achieve multifunctional and advanced application functions, multiple boards with high-speed signals are now required to be incorporated into a single unit. Board-to-board connectors that can withstand harsh automotive environments are ideal for these applications.
Industrial PCs - Floating Board-to-Board Connectors
The company was considering board-to-board connectors for modularization with a view to future expandability. The company was having difficulty finding the optimum board-to-board connector from the standpoints of environmental performance and service life required for industrial equipment.
Automotive Connectors for BMS
The manufacturer needed to make the BMS lighter and more compact, and therefore needed to make the connectors used to connect the various modules thinner and more compact as well. However, finding connectors of the right size that could deliver the environmental performance the market demanded was a challenge.
PC peripherals manufacturer Product Development Div.
While the employee had established that many vendors manufactured and sold USB type-CⓇ connectors, finding a manufacturer whose components he could use with confidence for his team’s project was more difficult than he initially thought.
