Component Manufacturers Target Harsh Environments

As demand for electronics components that can be used in harsh environmental conditions continues to increase, interconnect, passive and electromechanical device (IP&E) manufacturers are developing more designs that operate in a wide range of harsh environments, and quite often, also deliver smaller form factors to fit into space-constrained systems and applications. Demand also continues to…

EDS Showcases IP&E Components

The Electronics Distribution Show (EDS) held earlier this month not only highlights the tight partnerships between electronic component manufacturers and distributors, it also gives component suppliers the chance to showcase some of their newest product introductions.
