Carteret, NJ — Since the introduction of the "glass cockpit", commercial and military aircraft manufacturers have experienced significant demand for next-generation technology. In place of mechanical, analog and digital gauges, pilots now use a fully integrated navigation, communications and aircraft systems suite that presents information on easy-to-read liquid crystal (LCD) and electroluminescent (ELD) displays.

One element that is critical to most ELD-style instruments is the electronic packaging component that creates the connection between the printed circuit board and the electroluminescent display. Fujipoly's low temperature Zebra® LT 200 Elastomeric Connector is one of the industry's most cost-effective and reliable options for these types of applications.
The layered carbon-filled and non-conductive silicone construction incorporates 240 conductors/inch to accommodate ELD displays with contact spacing as close as 0.015-in. (0.38mm). The physical characteristics of the silicone material also make it suitable for extremely cold (-65°C) and high-vibration aerospace environments. The Zebra LT 200 connector provides a current-carrying capacity of 50mA per 0.040 x 0.040-in. pad and can be ordered in custom lengths up to 9-in. (228.6mm).
