Suitable for use in medical electronics applications, connector technology from Onanon integrates electronic components into connector plugs. By inserting full-fledged computers between connector pins, the embedded electronics connector technology enables OEMs to embed value-added, intelligent, microscale systems into their connector designs while enhancing the capabilities that engineers can introduce into medical devices from their connectors. The drop-in replacement connectors can also include small PCBs for performing device ID, use-limiter, EEPROM, and fine-tuning functions. The company’s rapid wire-termination technology makes connecting wires to a PC board connector substrate easy as well. And by allowing users to replace the connector plugs using ordinary tools, the embedded technology simplifies the task of upgrading medical device systems. In addition, it dispenses with the use of solder, which can damage PCBs.
