MARKET FACTS
  • The leading end use market for 0.050” micro connectors is the military/aerospace market.
  • The other leading market's are commercial aviation which includes guidance and navigation, avionics, and cargo loading.
  • Geophysical, medical equipment, instrumentation and industrial, “niche” opportunities account for the balance of the market.
  • Reduced size and reliable performance in difficult environments drive the use of 0.050″ micro connectors.
