Connector and component manufacturer GTK has added a UK manufacturing capability to complement its Far Eastern facilities with the acquisition of a cable assembly and box-building facility based in Romsey, Hampshire. The 6000 square foot plant is able to offer technical assistance, prototyping, pre-production and production services on all types of assembly – crimp, coax, idc, looms – as well as box-building.
Offered in a wide range of configurations, USB 1.1 and 2.0 compliant PCB mount connectors from connector and component manufacturer GTK are capable of fast data transfers with speeds of up to 480 Mbit/s. The connectors are available in A and B series and benefit from a large range of readily available standard cable assemblies. Custom made assemblies are also possible.
Newly available from connector and component manufacturer GTK is a series of PoweredUSB cable assemblies designed for both power and signal applications. PoweredUSB connection systems provide a single cable connection that supplies both the standard USB communication signals and two additional wire pairs for extra power. One of the limitations of standard USB is the amount of +5V current available to supply attached peripherals. This is sufficient for mice and keyboards, but not when the power requirements exceed 500mA. PoweredUSB assemblies simplify computer system wiring and reduce system cost as no separate power brick is required for power hungry peripherals, reducing the requirement for power outlets.
New MHF micro coax antenna connectors from connector and component manufacturer GTK include versions with a mating height of just 1.5mm (MHF III) - claimed to be one of the lowest profile connectivity devices on the market. Further benefits include excellent VSWR characteristics, wide operating frequency (DC to 6GHz), low insertion loss and RoHS compliance.
