Plug-in 5G data stability

Panasonic Industry presents its simplified and stable Board to FPC Connector for 5G Millimeter-wave Antenna Modules in modern communication devices

5G – the current framework for mobile communication reality means nothing less than an entirely new dimension in capacity, speed and simultaneity of daily data communication – especially within the defined frequency range 2 (FR2) using the millimeter-wave spectrum (28 GHz band). This is boosting the necessity for device technology being able to reliably handle a corresponding extent of data transmission.

To ensure devices like smartphones, routers and many others meeting those data transmission stability requirements, Panasonic Industry now offers a specific Board to FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit) Connector for 5G, connecting the antenna module with the main board and thus contributing to an immaculate data flow for applications operating in the range of millimeter-waves.

“The connector fully meets what we expect from technology being compatible with the potentials of 5G”, points out Carsten Wieber from Panasonic Industry. “It is constructively robust, per se ready for a large amount of simultaneous high frequency signals, shields signal interferences and allows simplified circuit designs.”

The FPC connector replaces conventional coaxial connectors usually necessary for the extensive mm-wave antenna infrastructure – and thus renders additional cables, components and assembly efforts as redundant.
Noise prevention and hence communication stability is achieved by the means of a metal shielding structure, covering the connector’s socket and the header’s outer part, resulting in optimized EMI/EMS characteristics
This very metal shielding – and Panasonic Industry’s unique tough contact structure ensure the connector being flawlessly robust and resistant to shocks, vibrations and all other impacts that prevail for most of modern IoT or portable communication devices.

Understanding Functional Safety FIT Base Failure Rate Estimates per IEC 62380 and SN 29500

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Functional safety standards such as IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 require semiconductor device manufacturers to address both systematic and random hardware failures. Base failure rates (BFR) quantify the intrinsic reliability of the semiconductor component while operating under normal environmental conditions. Download our white paper which focuses on two widely accepted techniques to estimate the BFR for semiconductor components; estimates per IEC Technical Report 62380 and SN 29500 respectively.

Transforming 400V Power for SELV Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vicor

Converting from distribution-friendly voltages like 400V down to locally-useful voltages can be a tough engineering challenge. In SELV systems, many teams turn to BCM converter modules because of their efficiency, form factor, and ease of design-in. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ian Masza of Vicor about transforming 400V into power for SELV systems.
