Wearable connectors tend to be miniaturized

2019-05-05

Sports cameras can be classified as wearables because they can be mounted on a helmet or worn on the wrist or on a piece of clothing while capturing spectacular motion video while skiing. This relatively new market is experiencing significant growth, and the driving force for growth is likely to come from the popularity of social networking sites where you can share video and still images recorded by your sports cameras with friends. . However, this is not just a consumer market. Professional film and television production is also increasingly using motion cameras, in addition to security and surveillance.
The design of motion cameras has been constantly evolving. Although cameras typically record images with a 16:9 aspect ratio, several motion cameras that support 360-degree video capture are now available. Since these cameras use multiple lenses, the resulting video must be "spliced" together in the software, and some models can now do this in the camera. Moreover, the video resolution of sports cameras has been steadily increasing. At least one type of motion camera currently on the market has a video resolution of 5.2K.

The complexity of the electronic components inside the motion camera is increasing, and it needs to be developed in the direction of miniaturization. However, considering the intense motion and severe environment that are often encountered during use, these electronic components must be highly reliable and stable.Konnra designed the KR1200's ultra-thin 1.2 mm pitch wire-to-board connection system to provide a robust connection in a compact form factor while increasing reliability and assembly speed.

Similarly, Konnra's 1.2mm wire-to-board connector system is an ideal solution to deliver high performance in a compact size while ensuring a robust hold. With a rated current of 1.5 amps, a small footprint and a locking mechanism, this product is a comprehensive terminal solution developed by Konnra for space-constrained equipment.

Wearable devices are suitable for a wide range of applications, and flexibility is now a frequently encountered design requirement. Wearable sensing devices are gradually entering sportswear and other apparel areas, including footwear, and can monitor a range of physiological and performance indicators. Flexible motion trackers and fitness trackers work well with these applications.

At the same time, Konnra's low profile, high-speed, ultra-miniboard-to-board stacking connectors offer the ultimate in space-saving design, whether for medical wearables, fitness wristbands or wearable “sports” cameras. Ideal for a wide range of wearable applications.
