Harsh-environment military and aerospace electronics applications, which may include radar, cameras, vehicular electronics, avionics, embedded systems, drones and more, require specialized interconnect solutions. These solutions must not only be able to withstand extreme environmental conditions, such as extreme operating temperatures, high vibration, high pressure, and exposure to water or dust, but must also correspond to the high level of technical performance demanded by the final applications. To attain these performance levels, specifying engineers need to take many things into consideration.

The article provides details on the following factors:

  • Environmental conditions
  • Connector housing materials
  • Connector technology and design
  • Custom connector designs
  • The component integration process
  • Connector end-use
