M16 is the "go to” connector for high pin count applications
binder has recently made key additions to its M16 connector series. They are versions that meet the very high data speeds required by the latest sensor-based automation systems and an ASIG-compliant model used in wireless networks including 5G. binder has been at the forefront of M16 connector development since the 1970s working to widen the range of applications for these versatile circular connectors.
How telecoms can maximise their competitive edge using 5G data
With 5G rolling in, telecom operators are bracing themselves for an explosion of incoming data. Telcos will either thrive or be left behind based on their ability to translate 5G data into business value.
Upverter for automation of SMARC carrier board design
ADLINK Technology has partnered with Altium and is now offering a fully automated SMARC carrier design process to its customers, leveraging Upverter, a web-based drag-and-drop designer tool.

Interactive displays in the passenger cell of the future
Smartphones, tablets, televisions: touch displays are ubiquitous and are increasingly being used in modern vehicles - whether for buttonless operation of the air conditioning or infotainment system. In contrast to consumer electronics, these functions have to face special challenges in vehicles: Strong vibrations, changing temperatures and electromagnetic fields are the rule in road traffic.
