The key to a successful custom connector design is collaboration between the product design engineers and the customer. The photo shown on the left is a perfect example of what happens when this collaboration works. This customer had a very tight space constraint and a sensitive differential signal. The existing product was producing unacceptable losses at the connector junctions due to unmatched impedance. FilConn was asked to develop a product from scratch which maintained the impedance and the differential signal through twin pin junctions. The result is a high temperature high pressure custom connector product that was born out of a collaborative effort between FilConn designer engineers and the customers design engineers. The product was field tested in 2008 and approved in early 2009
