Contactless connectivity to connect the future










Where traditional and physical connectivity has restrictions due to vibration and dust, contactless connectivity provides high reliability. Contactless connectivity allows us to solve interconnection problems such as oxidation that deteriorates or breaks the connection by eliminating physical connectors.

In electronic systems, where connectors can be the primary point of failure due to poor design and mechanical and/or environmental stress, contactless connectivity offers many advantages when high performance is critical. With an increase in automation and the use of more connected electronic systems, contactless connectivity has several advantages: it is more reliable, facilitates maintenance and allows unlimited mating cycles.

High frequency solutions: how to manage the increasing data traffic in a finite RF spectrum.

It has been widely reported that the world’s limited natural resources are being depleted at an unsustainable rate – and enormous efforts are underway globally to develop new sustainable solutions. But one finite commodity that is rarely talked about – but is increasingly central to the way we live today – is radio frequency (RF) spectrum.

The functioning of almost all parts of society and industry depends on signals transmitted by radio waves at microwave (MW) and millimeter waves (mmWave) frequencies. Demand for wireless broadband access is growing exponentially, with the number of 5G subscriptions set to exceed 1 billion by the end of 2022. By the end of 2027, 5G subscriptions are projected to reach 4.4 billion. By 2022, the average monthly usage per smartphone is expected to exceed 15 GB.
