Nanominiature connectors from TE Connectivity combine appealing size and weight with desired performance attributes including high reliability, low contact resistance, and wide operating temperature range. The connectors are 10 times smaller in volume and about 10% the weight of a standard Micro-D connector with the same number of positions, delivering significant size and weight reduction. They also provide electrical and mechanical advantages over other nanominiature connectors such as voltage ratings of 500 V at sea level vs. 250 V for others and 500 mating cycles vs. 200. Applications include space, smart munitions, missile defense, aircraft communications, and UAVs. Temperature range is as great as -200 to +200°C.
