evolve, compliance and interoperability pose an ongoing challenge, but the programmable controller overcomes these issues with its firmware upgradeability. Additionally, the controller offers a high level of integration that minimises bill-of-material cost and simplifies designs, replacing multiple discrete components. “Car makers are basing their in-


vehicle infotainment designs on drivers and passengers connecting their smartphones, tablets and other portable electronics, and they want to offer the convenience to quickly charge these devices without compatibility issues,” said Ajay Srikrishna, vice president of Cypress’ Wired Connectivity Business Unit. “Our highly-integrated


Automotive EZ-PD CCG3PA controller simplifies the design of reliable, in-vehicle charging ports by minimising the need for external components. It enables fast charging while keeping pace with changes in standards.” www.cypress.com


NEW ERA FOR CRITICAL CONNECTIVITY


Huber+Suhner has developed products designed for phase critical applications requiring ultimate precision and reliability. The company’s new product line of Consistent Over Temperature (CT) phase invariant cable assemblies provide high performance across a number of key factors. With optimum stability over harsh temperatures, minimal phase and insertion loss, return loss and shielding effectiveness as well as simple and efficient installation, the CT assemblies are essential for applications where communication cannot be compromised, such as drones, military vehicles, and test and measurement scenarios. CT variants are available of the tried and tested Sucoform, EZ, Minibend, and Multiflex product families. Featuring high-quality electrical


MILITARY PERFORMANCE GRADE CONNECTOR OFFERS HIGH RELIABILITY


A 1.27mm pitch miniature connector has recently been introduced by high-performance interconnect solutions manufacturer, Nicomatic. This devices is specifically designed to target defence and other high-reliability applications. Meeting the performance requirements of MIL 83513, the EMM series connectors are claimed to occupy up to 40% less space than previous-generation connectors from the company. They are said to be some 20% smaller than Micro D connectors for 16-pin configurations and are around 10 percent smaller in footprint than other similar devices. Innovative design features such as reversed contacts, integrated 90° back protection and interchangeable


hardware, ensure that the new EMM connector series combines rugged design with enhanced electrical and environmental performance for high reliability applications. Signal contacts are rated for up to 3A (for a 30 pin connector), and deliver a wiping length of 1.27mm with 1.27µm gold plating to ensure that signal integrity is maintained while under conditions of heavy shock and vibration. The company is also offering its FFC Vshield Cable, which is a flexible shielded solution also for harsh


environment applications. Using innovative technology from Nicomatic, this solution provides EMI/RFI & ESD protection for applications where high-flexibility cable and data protection are crucial. The FFC V Shield is lightweight and durable with a flex life of 15 million cycles and a bend radius of


curvature of 63.5mm. This cable can also be adapted with other solutions from the company, such as Crimpflextm, Jumpers cables and Microflex to ensure secure interconnection. www.nicomatic.com


performance, the company’s first automotive board-to-board connector – SynaPad – acts as a single, solderless piece which is easy to assemble and enables direct to board connection. The connector also has the ability to compensate axial and radial misalignments which are key for reducing mechanical stress during temperature changes and vibration. With autonomous vehicles in mind, the


company also offers injection moulded radar antennas to suit the latest radar systems being developed in the industry today. Utilising radiator geometries, three-dimensional signal distribution networks, radar systems using technology from Huber+Suhner provide higher resolution images, can measure large distances and detect obstacles even in harsh weather conditions. Designed for the required high-power levels


in peak demand applications, the RFEX connector – an industry-first connector dedicated to solid-state RF energy applications – is a key component for commercialising solid-state RF energy and thus achieving controllability in the respective applications. www.hubersuhner.com


MINIATURISED POWER INTERFACES FOR POWERFUL DRIVES FROM HARTING power in a really compact interface.

dimensioned interface for energy-intensive applications, the M12 is now also available in the IEC 61076-2-111 standard K-coding. With four power contacts and a PE it is possible to safely transmit 7kW at 630V and 16A - a lot of p


The M12 connector from Harting is a circular connector for data and signals. In order to offer a similar compactly d


Ongoing miniaturisation is having an increasing impact on the space-saving supply of voltage to compact drives as well as on networks. The company advises the step towards developing and standardising the K-coding was therefore a logical and necessary one. Harting says, powerful voltage supplies for circular connectors have up to now been realised via 7/8 inch solutions. In PROFINET, the M12 L-coding with 0.75kW at 63V and 16A is a firmly established standard. In order to offer the widely-used M12 form factor to device manufacturers for voltage supply, the company will be supplying the K-coding with 7kW at 630V and 16A from Spring 2019, allowing the integrated t


transmission of data, signals and power. With power of this magnitude in a compact M12 housing, particular attention must be paid to clearance and


creepage distances to protect users properly. This is accomplished with a PE contact attached to the housing, which is configured as a preleading pin in the mating face in order to bleed off voltage and conduct away flashovers on the housing or between contacts. With the high voltages, the PCB socket must be protected from flashover on the contact side. To this end, all the hold-downs are separated from each


other with an insulator. K-coded cable is available in a crimp version. The connection will be secured with the familiar screw fitting typical of the M12 design. There will also be a new PushPull variant which clicks audibly into place. www.harting.com/DE/de/maerkte/m12-power-k
