Nano Miniatures: Saving space, weight and time in a variety of industry applications.
The Nano contact was first developed in the mid 60's increasing the package density from 400 contacts per square inch in the Micro to 1600 contacts per square inch in the Nano. This leap in high reliability and high contact density was well suited for the future demand in high-speed signals, reduction in board packaging, and weight savings.
Today, saving space, weight and time is applicable to all industries -- military, space, medical, telecommunication, automotive and computer designers are all striving to pack more performance into less space. The combination of current industry trends with advances in flexible and rigid printed circuit technology has driven an increase in demand for Nano connectors. These connectors are suitable for use in implantable medical devices, hearing aids, prosthetics, computers, petroleum industry, vision equipment, control systems, missiles, satellites, and space probes.
Cristek Nano connectors utilize the same reverse gender contact system described in Section 1.0; however, the contacts in the Nano are 30 AWG whereas the Micros are 24 AWG. Cristek Nanos are available in plastic and metalized packages; in strip, D style and circular layouts; in wire, through hole PCB, and surface mount PCB termination versions.
