Micro-D Connectors Market 2020-2027: Trends, Opportunities and Industry Projections

Micro-D Connectors: Introduction

  • Micro-D connectors look similar to D-sub connectors, as both are shaped like the letter ‘D’. However, micro-D connectors are about half the size of D-sub connectors.
  • Micro-D connectors are designed for use in mission critical applications, wherein high reliability and high density are required
  • Various types of micro-D connectors are available in the marketplace, such as cable-to-cable, board-to-cable, surface-mount board-to-cable and filtered-cable micro-D connectors
  • Micro-D connectors are manufactured from plastics, metals, composites, a broad range of mounting hardware, and straight and angled back shells
  • Micro-D connectors are used in multiple applications such as helicopters, navigation, deep sea exploration, medical devices, civil craft, space equipment, and satellite harnesses and payloads
  • Micro-D connectors are employed in various end-use sectors such as commercial, aerospace & defense, and industrial
