Features & Benefits

  • Signal contacts
  • Housing with ruggedized metal shell
  • High density: 100 and 200 signal contacts
  • Featuring Hypertac Hyperboloid contact technology

Overview

The MDD Series has been designed to resist the high levels of shock and vibrations in the harshest environments of the Commercial Aerospace. The MDD is a metal shell connector available with a 100 and 200 signal contacts configuration. With a 0.5mm contact diameter, with straight, surface mount tail and 90° termination styles. The metal shell improves system reliability by ensuring high levels of shock and vibration and by eliminating contact fretting, hence reducing wear rates, and avoiding system failure and down-times.

    Understanding the Test Criteria of Optical Fiber Transceivers Used in Space

    In space, high performance components must be able to deliver reliably in the punishing environment. It is optical transceivers that drive transmissions, converting signals to and from a copper-resident format. Fiber optics communications provide high bandwidth and low latency signaling. Signal transmissions through fiber optic cables (FOCs) provide immunity to EM/RFI interference, crosstalk, and voltage level surges. Fiber optics’ accuracy and reliability exceeds traditional cabling. Covering 1,000 feet requires four pounds of FOC versus 39 pounds of copper wiring, and fiber optics also consume less energy than copper. To convert electrical signals from circuitries with copper output to fiber optics, optical fiber transceivers are usually required.
