When flying in an aircraft, there are many safety factors to consider. For the passenger, it is unsettling when they begin to feel turbulence and experience a rocky ride. For the most part, turbulence is not necessarily dangerous. However, there are moments when there can become dangers and threats to the safety of an airplane. One factor is the chances of lightning striking an aircraft. To many people’s shock, aircrafts are actually very likely to be struck by lightning during their flight. Some reports state that active aircrafts will be struck at least once a year around the world. However, we rarely hear of such stories and their impacts on aircrafts.
The rise in technology is always an exciting topic. It is surprising how much the world has progressed in terms of innovation and technological advances within the past 50 years. However, the momentum has not stopped and innovation today is a much more accessible concept because of the vast access to data each person has compared to generations before them. Last month, Molex unveiled their new Impulse Orthogonal Direct Backplane Connector System. They were showcased at Design Con 2017 and featured backplane connectors that were designed for high-volume data center applications. Traditional in-line interfaces usually have insertion loss but this new impulse connector increases the resonance and delivers higher connectivity speeds.
