High Performance Feed-Through Connector for Engine and Transmission Applications 970306

This paper describes automobile connector design approaches to eliminate failure of connections from vibration, heat, chemical contaminants and other hostile elements of engine compartment environments. Conventional, non-sealed, low temperature connectors have been recognized as a weak link in the reliability of an automobile's growing electronic content.
Results of development and testing have shown that a combination of sealing and temperature resistant technologies derived from aerospace connectors, and materials and processes from computer and communication connectors, can produce high-performance connectors that better withstand these environments, decreasing interconnection-related failures of vehicle electronics.
