?Backplane Connector?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release AC/DC power converters for medical applications from Bear Power Supplies, which we summarised at the time by saying "Bear's compact and rugged BP Series encapsulated AC/DC power converters are available for purchase online, simplifying OEM evaluation for commercial, industrial and medical applications. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Voltage controller with integrated power MOSFET from Linear Technology: "Linear Technology has introduced the LTC4219 5A Hot Swap controller with sense resistor, for protecting low-power boards from inrush current in many RAID, server, telecom and industrial applications.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Molex - take a look at Valve connector simplifies manufacturing process which says: "Molex has expanded its range of externally threaded Brad mPm DIN valve connectors with the addition of Form C and Form Micro housings for hydraulics and pneumatics systems.".

Take a look also at the news release from Kontron, System host board for energy and medical sectors, as well as SPEC Pak enables environmental connections from Anderson Power Products, and Connector system for engine control units and more from Molex.
