Case Study 6

    Semi-Custom Variations

    Variation of standard product by taking an existing connector and modifying areas to meet customer application requirements. Often achieved using existing tooling or nominal low cost tooling modifications.

     Application

    Aerospace In-flight Infotainment.

    Scope

     Provide standard high density 26 contact D-Sub connector with 4 contacts at 5A current and 22 contacts at 3A current contact rating.

    Challenge

    Stamped contacts did not meet power requirements. Machined contacts were cost prohibitive.

    Solution

    Designed hybrid high density D-sub connector with machined and stamped contacts. 4 power and 22 signal contacts for the required current ratings. 67% cost reduction achieved.
