- The IEEE 802.3an, 10-Gigabit
Ethernet over twisted pair standard, also known as 10GBase-T,is
now emerging on a compliant of switches and servers in data
centers products. Advances in semiconductor designs, and sophisticated
algorithms intended to increase electromagnetic interference
(EMI) immunity, extremely fast speed and lower operating power
are the advantages of this 10GB over twisted pair wiring.
Drawing - STEP, STP and IGES are file extensions
for a 3-D
graphic file used by CAD software. STP stands for STandard
for the Exchange of Product model data. STP files are used
to store 3D image data in an ASCII format, following the standards
defined in ISO 10303-21.

their logistics and distribution functions to a service provider
that specializes in handling logistics such as transportation,
warehousing, and freight and forwarding. 3PL
Material - Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)
(chemical formula (C8H8)x¡P (C4H6)y¡P(C3H3N)z) is a common thermoplastic.
Its melting point is approximately 105 ¢XC (221 ¢XF). It is
a copolymer made by polymerizing styrene and acrylonitrile
in the presence of polybutadiene. The proportions can vary
from 15 to 35% acrylonitrile, 5 to 30% butadiene and 40 to
and AEC-Q200 - AEC is an abbreviation of "Automotive
Electronics Council." AEC is an industry organization
that promotes the standardization of reliability or qualification
standards for automotive electronic components, consisting
of major auto manufacturers and major electronic component
manufacturers in the USA. These standards are classified into
the following groups, according to the component category
and AEC-Q200 is the category for connectors. AEC-Q200

- Homogenous metallic mix consisting of 2 or more elements,
at least one of which is metal.
(Amp) - The unit of current. One ampere is the current
flowing through one ohm of resistance at one volt potential.
ANSI American National Standards Institute unit of electrical
current measuring electric charge per second.
- Heating and cooling treatment used to improve metalworking
materials by softening, relieving internal stress(es) and
refining the external structure of the metal to be shaped.
- A substance which prevents or slows down oxidation of material
exposed to air.
- Electrolytic process that adds thickness and density to
the outer layer of natural oxide on a metal surface.

Connectors - ARINC connectors are used mainly in
Avionic applications. Filters and protection components are
built in as fixed and/or replaceable modules. AEEC, AMC, and
FSEMC, the aviation industry activities organized by ARINC,
cooperatively establish consensus-based, voluntary aviation
technical standards that no one organization could develop
independently. During the Rockwell-Collins (RCI) acquisition
of ARINC, a potential for conflict of interest was identified
with RCI owning the industry standardization activities that
ARINC has held since the late 1940s. ARINC

ASEAN is a political and economic organization of
ten countries located in Southeast Asia. This International
organization is responsible for testing and standardizing
of industry materials. Overview

Frequency - The range of frequencies audible to the
human ear. Usually 30 Hz to 20,000 Hz.AC current (Alternating
Current) - electrical current whose charge magnitude and flow
direction follow a cyclic pattern.
(American Wire Gauge) - Standardized measurement
system for electrical conducting wire.
Reflection - The percentage of power reflected back
from a specific point on a path of light in fiber optics,
expressed as a negative dB.
Shell - Housing on a connector that covers the area
where the cable conductors connect to the connector contacts.
Twisted Pair Line - Advantage of A Balanced
Line is the Rejection of External Noise. In telecommunications
and professional audio, a balanced line or balanced signal
pair is a transmission line consisting of two conductors of
the same type, each of which have equal impedances along their
lengths and equal impedances to ground and to other circuits.
The chief advantage of the balanced line format is good rejection
of external noise.
- the difference between frequencies along an electronic signal
spectrum, expressed in hertz.
Metal - Metal that makes up the base of a connector,
contact or other metal accessory; additional metals or coatings
may be added on top of the base.
Coupling - A quick coupling mechanism for mating
a plug onto a receptacle utilizing three equally spaced pins
protruding from the receptacle shell which engage corresponding
ramps milled into the coupling nut of the mating plug. Mating
and un-mating is accomplished by rotating the coupling nut.
Radius (minimum safe bending radius) - Maximum amount
fiber or cable can be bent without incurring damage.

the critical element of any transformer. The bobbin or coil
former are at the heart of the transformer and serves as its
winding and termination platform.
- The main, or largest portion of a connector to which other
portions are attached, also called housing.
of Materials) - A comprehensive listing of components
and quantities required to manufacture an assembly.
- A fibrous or metallic group filaments interwoven in cylindrical
form to form a covering over one or more wires and protective
textile cover used for plastic insulation to provide mechanical
or thermal protections by separating cable segments and acting
as a flame retardant.
Voltage - Voltage required to breakdown the insulation
between two conductors.
- Grouping of rigid or flexible fiber optics that
carries a common signal.
