Electronics is continually given the challenge “How can we do more in less space?”  And year after year, component footprints are shrinking while performance is improving, PCBAs are becoming more complex and are being consolidated.  Cable is often an afterthought but it can be a key enabler to designing a compact, high-speed system.  This webinar will discuss two products that are helping to enable these designs in a simple, elegant way.   

What will you learn?

  • How you can achieve 5-20 Gbps speeds while using a flat ribbon cable
  • Flexible cable routing
  • Field serviceability 

Join Stephanie Owen, 3M’s Product Development Engineer supporting optical and copper interconnects, and John Sandy, TTI’s Supplier Marketing Manager as they review new market trends and 3M technology and products to achieve more in less space.
