¡V The DCR
is defined as the resistance of an inductor as a result
of the resistance of the wire used in the winding.

be used for any mode of transport. Under DDU terms the seller
is responsible for making the goods available to the buyer
at a named place of destination but not cleared for import.
The seller is also responsible for all the costs involved
to deliver the goods to the named place of destination. The
seller¡¦s risk also does not end until it reaches the names
place of destination.

- Measurement of the hardness of a substance.

- Export controls are implemented through the Export Administration
Regulations (EAR). If your item is subject to the jurisdiction
of the U.S. Department of Commerce, you should first determine
if your item is designated by an Export Control Classification
Number (ECCN) on the Commerce Control List (CCL). What
is an EAR99 designation? EAR99 is used when there
is no Export Control Classification Number classification
for a item. Therefore,Items that are subject to the jurisdiction
of the EAR but are not on the CCL, are designated EAR99. EAR99
serves as a ¡§basket¡¨ category for all such items.
connectors have the EAR99 designation. EAR99
Information and Overview
- An Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) is an alphanumeric
designation (i.e., 1A984 or 4A001) used in the CCL to identify
items for export control purposes. An ECCN categorizes items
based on the nature of the product, i.e. type of commodity,technology
or software and its respective technical parameters. If you
ship a commercial item from the United States to a foreign
destination, your transaction is likely to be subject to the
jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The Bureau
of Industry and Security (BIS) within the U.S. Department
of Commerce has jurisdiction over the export and reexport
of ¡§dual-use¡¨ items (i.e., commodities, technology and software
that have both civilian and military or proliferation applications).
ECCN Information and Overview
Computing - Edge
computing refers to data processing power at the edge of a
network instead of holding that processing power in a cloud
or a central data warehouse. There are several examples where
it's advantageous to do so. For example, in industrial Internet
of Things applications such as power production, smart traffic
lights,? or manufacturing, the edge devices capture streaming
data that can be used to prevent a part from failing, reroute
traffic, optimize production, and prevent product defects.
Procesing - Edge cloud processing refers to data
processing power in a cloud or a central data server. In reality,
an analytic model or rules might be created in a cloud then
pushed out to edge devices. Some edge devices are also incapable
of doing analysis.
Processing - What do we mean by edge processing
and why is it even necessary? Edge
processing is the ability to have an intelligent processing
capability located as close to the sensor or device as possible.
It provides IoT device access and control, security, and localized
intelligence that reduces the amount of data transmitted by
isolating and sending only the pertinent data needing to be
analyzed into the cloud.
this can potentially reduce the amount of data transmitted
and the need for processing capacity in the cloud by several
orders of magnitude. There are a number of commercial ¡§IoT
edge server¡¨ boxes, essentially modified PC servers, available
from multiple vendors that act as localized intelligent controllers
and processors. But is this the best way to deploy edge processing?

and ECIA Standards- The
organization ceased operations in February 2011. EIA assigned
ECA maintenance of all existing interconnect, passive and
electro-mechanical (IP&E) and inter-department EIA standards.
EIA also granted ECA the rights to develop new IP&E electronic
component standards under the ANSI-designation of EIA standards.
All other electronic components standards will be managed
by their respective sectors. ECA joined the Electronic Components
Industry Association (ECIA).

its length under low stress and snaps back to original length
upon release of stress.
- Process of using electrical current to coat an electrically
conductive object with a relatively thin layer of metal.
Force (EMF) - Pressure or voltage. The force which
causes current to flow in a circuit. ELV stands for End of

(EOL) is a term used with respect to a product supplied
to Xmultiple customers, indicating that the product is in
the end of its useful lifetime and Xmultiple will no longer
be marketing, selling, or sustaining a particular product.
The term lifetime, after the last production date, depends
on the product and is related to a customer's expected product
lifetime. All Xmultiple products have a minimum of seven year
EOL Most of our connectors manufactured have well over 10
years of lifespan
- An adhesive used in the connector termination process.
Resin - Type of plastic that becomes hard and infusible
once a hardening agent is applied; also has excellent adhesive
action, high chemical, solvent, and thermal resistance, and
low shrinkage on curing.
Discharge (ESD) controls and procedures for the connector
industry have no standard for reporting or controlling this
element of manufacturing for all types of connectors. However,
the ESD controls are maintained in the ISO-9000 family of
standard in our industry. ESD is one of the most important
issues in the manufacturing of any electronic products and
includes the connectors and component required in their production.
Xmultiple has extensive anti-static procedures in our factories
