The SpeedStack Mezzanine Connector System is a high-density, low-profile solution that supports data rates of up to 40 Gbps per differential pair. The system is designed for OEMs that contend with limited PCB real estate. The mated stack heights of 4.00 to 10.00mm along with a 0.80mm pitch provides design engineers with the ultimate in flexibly to address space constraints without sacrificing performance. The SpeedStack Connector System comes in multiple circuit sizes of 22, 44, 60, 82, 104 and 120 with a range of 6 – 32 differential pairs for even greater flexibility.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
