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…
