What Are Interconnects?

What are interconnects? Find out as we get back to the basics. Plus learn more about our experience and manufacturing capabilities.

Interconnect solutions enable the connection between two devices. You can achieve this connection either mechanically or electrically. Interconnect cables are critical as they make up part of the building block in aircraft, military weapons, medical equipment, and many more applications. These cable assemblies with interconnect solutions can be shielded and overmolded to provide ingress protection.

At ISC, we design and manufacture interconnect solutions for various industries: military and defense, medical, aerospace, industrial and agriculture. The design and layout of interconnect solutions are vital to proper function, performance, power efficiency, reliability, and fabrication yield.

Materials and Component Considerations

Interconnect solutions are made up of various materials. You need to understand what material components make up interconnect solutions, both inward and outward since you have unending layers and assemblies to connect, particularly the elements that are used to safeguard and prolong interconnect solutions' life.

ISC uses a variety of materials to meet our customers' needs, including shock and vibration, abrasion, and ingress protection.

Components include wiring, mechanical assemblies, cabling, housings, wire harnessing, adapters, and connectors.

Our team at ISC will design and manufacture these interconnect components for your company with custom overmolding. ISC manufactures a wide array of strain reliefs, boots, and connector dust covers for most connector systems. We can also create inserts to allow companies to private label their overmolded interconnect solutions.

Overmolded Interconnect Design

ISC uses advanced CAD/CAM software to create overmolded interconnect solutions that bring your products to life. Listed below are some examples of overmolded interconnect solutions that ISC can help you design:

  • Custom Molded Cable Assemblies
    • Designs for: Audio/video connectors, circular interconnect solutions, coaxial connectors for data, din style connectors, ferrite, modular RJ connectors, power conductors, rectangular overmolds, strain relief, transitions, USB and specialty (custom) products (i.e. custom medical assemblies, transitions, coils, power plugs, OLED BNC plugs, over-molded clips, power receptacles, RJ 45 PCB).
  • Encapsulated PCB & PCBA
    • Designs for: Flex circuits, LED/LCD, connector integration, PCB headers, PCB, m-cables, and transitions.
  • Molded Strain Reliefs
    • Designs for: Slip-on connector boots, slip-on strain reliefs, housing/enclosures, dust caps, molded jackscrews
