- S-Parameters provided data about the electrical
properties of an interconnect¡Xa connector, a scope probe,
a circuit-board trace, a circuit-board via, or a cable¡Xis
contained in the interconnect¡¦s S-parameters.. S-Parameters
Plating - The application of plating material to
a limited portion of a connector contact, especially those
areas susceptible to wear.
Gigabit Transceivers - Frequently Asked Questions -
Xmultiple¡¦s SFP Gigabit 1000BASE-T products are based on
the SFP Multi Source Agreement (MSA). They are compatible
with Gigabit Ethernet and 1000BASE-T standards as specified
in IEEE Std. 802.3:2002. This document covers the most commonly
asked questions about Xmultiple¡¦s SFP Gigabit.
Sigma - Six Sigma at many organizations simply means
a measure of quality that strives for near perfection. Six
Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology
for eliminating defects. Six
Cup - The hollow cylinder at the rear of a solder
contact where a wire is inserted and soldered in place.
- Outer covering of a multi-conductor cable.
- Metallic layer placed around a conductor or group
of conductors to prevent electrostatic or electromagnetic
interference between the enclosed wire and external fields.
Effectiveness - Ability of a shield to screen out
undesirable signals and prevent leakage.
- Le Systeme International d'unites or the International
System of Units; the modern measurement equivalent of the
Code - Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes
are four digit numerical codes assigned by the U.S. government
to business establishments to identify the primary business
of the establishment. The SIC code for connector manufactures
Glass - Glass made mostly from silica for use in
fiber optic fibers.
Cable - Single fiber, fiber optic cable.
Mode Fiber (SMF) - Fiber with a very small core diameter
and a cladding whose refractive index is very close to that
of the core; transmits light at a narrow angle but over very
Form-factor Pluggable (SFP and SFP+) - The small
form-factor pluggable is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver
used for both telecommunication and data communications applications.
The form factor and electrical interface are specified by
a multi-source agreement.SFP Transcievers and EEPROM Monitoring
with A2h Address
Form-factor Pluggable (SFP and SFP+) A2h Address-
SFP Transcievers and EEPROM Monitoring with A2h Address. Using
address A2h, the user can monitor transceiver parameters,
including temperature, voltage, laser bias current, laser
power, and receiver power.
Contact - Female contact designed to mate with a
- Fusible metal alloy with a low melting point used
to join other metals, usually those with higher melting points
than the solder.
Process - Joining metallic surfaces with solder,
without the melting of the base metals. Soldering
is an economical, versatile and fast termination method. A
soldered connection has metallic continuity and excellent
long term reliability.
Methods for Terminal Blocks - There are industry
profiles which provide the optimum method for processing
SMD package types for both traditional SnPb solders and for
Pb-free solders. The maximum temperatures used for Pb-free
solder processes tend to be higher than the traditional SnPb
Connection- The bonding of two metals by pressure
means without the use of solder or any method requiring heat.
Press Fit RJ Connectors.
Conductor - Conductor consisting of a single wire.Solderless
The joining of two metals by pressure means without the use
of solder, braze, or any method requiring heat.
- The most common analog simulator, SPICE (Simulation Program
with Integrated Circuit Emphasis). SPICE
Finger Action - Contact design used in a printed
circuit connector or a socket contact to permit easy, stress-free
spring action for contact pressure and/or retention.
Index Fiber - Multimode fiber consisting of a core
with a uniform refractive index surrounded by cladding of
a slightly lower refractive index; accepts light rays at a
wider angle, but has smaller bandwidth than single mode fibers.
Process Controls (SPC) - Statistical
Process Controls (SPC) is implemented in our manufacturing
partner facilities with control charts for control processes.
Conductor - A group of wires twisted together to
form a conductor.
Mounting - Act of electrically connecting components
directly on the surface of a conductive pattern without utilizing
holes in a circuit board.
analysis (alternatively SWOT Matrix) is a structured planning
method used to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities,
and Threats involved in a project or in a business venture.
Xmultiple SWOT analysis is provided for a product, place,
industry or person. It involves specifying the objective of
the business or project with a customer and then identifying
the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable
to achieving that objective.
Integrity - Signal
integrity or SI is a measure of the quality of an electrical
signal. In digital electronics, a stream of binary values
is represented by a voltage (or current) waveform. Over short
distances and at low bit rates, a simple conductor can transmit
this with sufficient fidelity.
