TE Connectivity’s new 369 shielded connectors expand harsh environment capabilities beyond commercial aerospace

EMI shielded product extension of current 369 connector family now available

HARRISBURG, Pa.  – November 12, 2019 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is extending its time-tested 369 connector series with the introduction of the new 369 shielded rectangular connectors for environments that demand ambient EMI noise protection. These connectors incorporate the benefits of the 369 series, which is qualified for use in a wide range of commercial aerospace applications, with EMI shielding that opens up new application possibilities.

“The combination of shielding technology with the existing 369 connector series enables a huge range of potential applications for the 369 series beyond commercial aerospace,” said Clint Schlosser, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “That includes other harsh environment applications like military aerospace, fighting vehicles and military ground vehicles.”

TE’s new rectangular connectors have been tested to withstand indirect lightning strikes of 3.6ka and are rated to provide effective shielding of greater than 60 DB at low frequencies and greater than 40 DB at high frequencies.

This EMI protection technology is wrapped in a lightweight, non-toxic (RoHS-compliant) composite nickel shell that can lead to up to 75% weight savings. 369 series shielded connectors enable data transfer rates of up to 100Mbs (100 Base-T1) and are backward compatible with current 369 product offerings.

These features on the new shielded extension complement the 369 series connectors’ rugged, versatile design. 369 series connectors are engineered to save valuable space with a lightweight, small form factor design. Designed to MIL-DTL-38999 levels of performance, 369 series connectors are ideally suited for harsh aerospace and military environments.

Cadence Celsius Thermal Solver

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Electrical-thermal co-simulation can dramatically improve the system design process, allowing thermal design adaptation to be done much earlier. The Cadence Celsius Thermal Solver is a complete electrical-thermal co-simulation solution for the full hierarchy of electronic systems from ICs to physical enclosures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with CT Kao of Cadence Design Systems about how the Celsius Thermal Solver can help detect and mitigate thermal issues early in the design process.
