Re: Connectors
@fasmicro getting smaller is key in today's environment, smaller connectors are critical to reducing the size of gadgets or smartphones. Intel is one of the few companies on Earth that doing a great jobs in this field, as technologies continue to evolve, so does the state of interconnect technology- which follow a universal trend in electronics, moving toward minituarization and functionality.  

Cost, minituarization and complexity are just some of the key factors in changing RF and connector market, one thing is for sure here- there's a constant pressure for reducing manufacturing costs.

Re: Connectors
Yes it is more related to telecom, that is where my point was to present usage with 3G application.

That is a brilliant analysis. In the age of mobile, you need to think minimal design. That is wht companies like Flextronics are doing well over Intel and co. When you design a chipset that can be ported into any mould, people care more if the phone works that what is inside it. But to get them to do that check, it needs to be affordable. The only exception being Apple.

Re: Connectors
Huber+Suhner made the RF antenna module. Then, it seems like more related to cellular network. RF antenna module would be used in the vehicle.

Re: Connectors
@Daej: After huge search on Google, i found this link...here you go...For example, a Huber+Suhner RF power switch is designed for channel switching in basestations, replacing electronically controlled RF relays. - See more at: electronicsweekly.com/

Re: Connectors
Please provide connector supplier name or web side Link to get the more clarification of "RF signaling Experience."I am afraid that I would not get it on top of my head.

Re: Connectors
Still unclear what lies ahead for these companies, one thing is for sure here- the public's appetite for information anywhere  and anytimne has resulted to smartphone revolution, which placing a greater demands on mobile devices. As a result of this revolution, network and spectrum are being stretched and engineers are being forced to make a real difference. we can expect more to come especially in developing sectors of the market.

Re: Connectors
@samicksha--In my experience in the mobile phone and mobile computing areas, most high-volume products don't use traditional connectors in the RF path, they are too expensive.  Apple iPads are an exception--they are full of micro-coaxial connectors.  Their desings are not very refined in many regards.  

It isn't clear to me that connector companies per-se have much to offer in the mobile phone space, where the only good price is "free".

Couple of months back i read a blog, Connector suppliers are looking for ways to apply their experience of RF signalling to applications such as 3G mobile comms.

Google "proved" the D-Wave 2 they operate jointly with NASA (mainly paid for by Google) can operate "up to ∼ 108 times faster".
I've written before about the impact the Internet of Things (IoT) will have on electronics sales including the special role played by analog devices in IoT.
Until about a decade ago, thermal energy was considered almost entirely as an analog, bulk phenomena.
Unless you live in a cave without any media access (which, I suppose, would preclude your reading this blog) you have heard about the Internet of Things (IoT).
With large scale integration of analog functions, we can probably bring eyesight to the blind.
