The new PCI Express 4.0 spec running at 16 Gbps per lane is being supported by the 2nd generation Optical Copper (Cu) Link interconnect system for inside and outside the box. Molex’s Nano Pitch connector and cable assembly system was selected by the PCI-SIG committee and is the option for the newly developing SAS 4.0 spec 24 Gbps per lane performance storage links. Internal cable assemblies, PCB receptacle connectors, shielded external cable assemblies and port receptacle connectors are nearing the final design and business case inputs by suppliers of tooling development. Some suppliers are expected to design their connector product to be able to support the next generation of PCI Express 5.0 which is running at 32 Gbps per lane for future proofing and reduction of development costs within the next few years.

Kestrel Engineering Ltd recently released a new device, known as the Saf-Deflat-Aer Screw-On, which can be very useful in reducing noise levels when deflating aircraft wheels. The device is meant to reduce noise levels by more than 20 A-Weighted decibels and this is a huge reduction in noise levels considering the noise emitted during wheel deflation. For example, the wheel of a Boeing 747 which has been inflated to 195 psi is deflated by removing the valve core. This can result ear shattering noise levels of up to 117 A-Weighted decibels. This levels are very unsafe and very high according to current international safety standards.

Researchers at Rice University are developing a carbon nanotube coating that will drastically reduce the weight of coaxial cables. This new development could cut the weight of the cables in half. Aerospace and military users will see this as a huge weight off the users’ shoulders if the things were no longer so heavy. Despite their usefulness, one of the most common complaints about them over the years was how bulky they were.
