ITT Electronic Components is launching a robust Micro-D connector with exceptional attenuation. Designated the TMDMP filter, the connector utilises an innovative internal filter design that provides the density needed to accommodate the ferrite tubes necessary for Pi filtering in military and aerospace applications.
Keith Teichmann, director of product management for ITT Electronic Components, explains: "Unlike conventional 'C' type filters, the 'Pi' filter design utilises two capacitors around a ferrite inductor, providing a significantly better attenuation curve. This design is also lightweight yet rugged, and housed in a reduced package size, making it suitable for harsh environments, particularly those with space constraints."
Completely intermateable with MIL-DTL-83513 products, the TMDMP filter connector is suitable for integrated avionics and electronic warfare, satellites and space systems, radar and sensors, weapon controls and targeting systems. Additional applications include displays, instrumentation, data processing, radio, navigation, and telecommunications.
The TMDMP filter connector is available in five sizes: 9, 15, 21, 25 and 37, with contacts for both sockets (receptacle) and pins (plugs). The connector features rugged aluminium shells, and soldering to the printed wiring board is facilitated by expanded contact terminal spacing. Capacitance values include H, L, M and T.
Pricing for the TMDMP filter connector ranges from $150 to $200 in quantities of 100. Lead times are from 12 to 14 weeks.
