Micro connectors with backshells

25 August 2021 Interconnection

At this year’s DSEI exhibition, Nicomatic launched its new DBMM Series, a modification of the DMM 2 mm connectors to include fully integrated backshells. DBMM connectors save space, measuring only 15 mm front to back, are easy to handle and offer excellent EMI protection. Qualified to MIL-DTL-83513, two models are available: DBMM220 (four to 32 contacts) and DBMM320 (six to 48 contacts). They suit high-power and high-frequency applications such as missile systems, military aircraft and radar systems.

The company also showcased its aero modular EN4165 Optimus connector, a versatile low-profile, user-configurable rectangular I/O connector series offering high density and space saving compared to circular connectors. Designers can specify the layout they require, including signal and power contacts. Able to withstand 500 mating and de-mating cycles, high shock and vibration and extreme temperatures, Optimus interconnects provide excellent protection against EMI and are waterproof. Fully interchangeable with existing EN4165 solutions, Optimus connectors are a space-saving and stackable solution designed for equipment interface connection to a harness or in rack-and-panel installations.

Easily customisable thanks to Nicomatic’s modular manufacturing capabilities, the company’s miniature Hi-Rel connectors deliver excellent performance and can be stacked closely together to minimise PCB space. Also showing at DSEI were the 1 mm pitch nano-density AMM Series, rated for 15 G vibration, 100 G shock and operating temperatures between -65°C and 200°C, plus the 1,27 mm pitch EMM Series, which meets the performance requirements of MIL 83513 and is 20% smaller than standard Micro D connectors. Featuring integrated 90° back protection and reversed contacts, EMM connectors suit board-to-board and board-to-wire configurations in any pin selection from four to 60 signal; contacts.
