Overcoming Connectivity Challenges in Defense Applications
Designers of products for defense applications face a complex set of challenges. They must address continually growing data volumes and bandwidth requirements in systems that are smaller, lighter, more mobile and more energy-efficient than ever before, while also meeting requirements for ruggedness and reliability in extreme environments and battle conditions. High-reliability micro/nano electronic connectors and sophisticated interconnection assemblies are essential to today’s defense systems, because without adequate connectivity it is impossible to transmit, process and store the data necessary for them to operate. This white paper will explore the major connectivity-related challenges involved with defense applications and highlight potential solutions.
