Neoconix Inc. has fully released a PCBeam™ 92 Position Connector to reliably interconnect Texas Instrument’s new DLP3310 (S315 DMD Chipset) and a mating PC Board or Flexible Printed Circuit. This DMD is almost 50% smaller than the DLP4410/S312, thereby requiring a similar connector miniaturization. Neoconix’s patented PCBeam™ technology was able to meet the challenge

Incredible advances in processor and memory technology have mandated shrinking all other electronic components from chip capacitors to connectors and the circuitry that joins them. The connector industry has responded to these challenges by introducing new classes of high-density microminiature connectors.
A basic pillar of the electronics industry has been its ability to stuff more functionality in less space. The ubiquitous smartphone now packs more computing power than a room-sized computer of the 1970s. According to Bell’s Law, a new, lower-price class of computing devices emerges roughly every 10 years.
