This market-leading RF capability delivers exceptional high-bandwidth
performance in a durable, rugged design that withstands high shock and
The new series of lightweight ITT Cannon Micro-D connectors are capable of
carrying 802.11n wireless transmission frequencies in a Micro-D package that
opens up a world of wireless connectivity for passengers in-flight. The ITT
Cannon difference is evident in the innovative design and easy integration
into small PCB and Panel I/O applications with minimal space requirements.
Constructed of lightweight, glass-filled thermoset materials and manufactured
with strong high-performance dielectric material, the Cannon Micro Wireless
Access Point High-Bandwidth RF Connector System is engineered to stay
connected and endure in the harshest shock and vibration environments.
“ITT Cannon has a long legacy as an innovation leader in the aviation industry
spanning almost a century,” said Tom Cruz, vice president and general manager,
aerospace and defense, with ITT’s Interconnect Solutions business. “The ITT
