The term “small connectors” doesn’t necessarily indicate a specific connector size; rather, it refers to any connector in which a lot can be accomplished in a small space. This could encompass everything from D-subminiature connectors to shockingly small, yet powerful, microminiature variations.
Modular connectors are designed to allow customers to construct a bespoke design from a range of standard options. The components of the modular connector are already designed and ready to manufacture, making it easy for the customer to specify the exact features required.
The technology used within spacecraft equipment carries a lot of responsibility, so it must undergo rigorous testing on earth before it can be launched into space. This is where hermetic connectors come into play.
Positronic PosiBand technology offers lower contact resistance, contributing to higher current density (or current per contact).
