Custom Grid Array technologyCost-effective and smaller alternative to coaxial RF contacts Interconnect solutions for medical applications must provide high performance and ensure the highest level of safety. At the same time, there is a pressing market need to make them even smaller, more robust, and more cost-effective. Coaxial RF contacts can be large, delicate, and expensive. Replacing them with a Grid Array can reduce the overall size, weight, and cost of the connector. Learn More
Application: Catheters Undergoing Multiple Autoclave CyclesA medical device manufacturer was looking for an alternative to standard high cost autoclave compatible connector offerings for a range of electrophysiology catheters used to map the electrical activity of the heart to detect arrhythmia. This minimally invasive procedure provides access through a small incision (typically in the groin area) feeding the disposable catheter through a blood vessel to the heart, allowing quicker patient recovery than traditional open heart methods. Due to the requirements for size, reliability, and sterilization, the customer required a connector with up to 25 contacts that was easy to use, reliable and could survive multiple autoclave cycles.
