Sealing Technology in Environmental Interconnect Systems
Every layer of an interconnect system is subject to the forces of nature and the equipment environment in which it serves. From the destructive power of a lightning strike to the cumulative impact of a million flex cycles, interconnects must do battle with the world around them. This special issue of QwikConnect presents the story of just one type of environmental stress, the steady drip, drip, drip of invasive fluids. The ability of I/O cabling and connectors to effectively resist the relentless tide of environmental fluids and to reliably seal precious and sensitive electronic systems from damage is a mission-critical element of interconnect system design and material selection.
