Product innovation: micro-d-mix™ / New DMM series: Ruggedized to M83513


Known for its CMM series connectors present in on-board electronics, mainly in defence and avionics, Nicomatic launches a new connector series. The new DMM series is a robust, compact and shock resistant connector registered under trademark MICRO-D-MIX™. It is available in an all LF or mixed-layout configuration, with high frequency and/or high power contacts with possible arrangements of between 1 and 4 rows of contacts with up to 120 contacts.

DMM connectors offer a high pin density (2mm pitch for signal contacts), as well as hybrid contacts (low frequency, high frequency, high power), which contribute to equipment miniaturization. Compared to Micro-D connectors they offer a higher density, a lower profile and a much lighter solution.

When first presented to customers, we heard immediately “This interconnect system is simple to understand and use”. Nicomatic fixings are the same whether you use a male or female connector, covers are mountable without modifying the front or rear panel and the philosophy of the system is to be modular with simple and universal concepts. The addition of a metal shield enables resistance to exterior factors such as electromagnetic interference (EMI), and grounding. The cover design is a good alternative to the back shell and leads to cost reduction.

Their compact design is ideal for miniature and portable devices or equipment used in the field, as well as on-board electronics, rack and panel. For example the right angle (V type) connector offer the most compact solution ever seen on the market. The connectors are designed and tested to withstand extreme conditions and comply with MIL-DTL-83513G (Micro-D standard). The qualification tests are passed with the EIA procedure.

In creating a connector system with a lower profile than the traditional MICRO-D, and in using standard components (fixings, HF, HP, LF contacts etc.), the cost of the product is reduced when bought on the marketplace. In the same panel cut you can either use a male or female connector as the shape and size fit to the hole. This is true both for rear and front mounting.

Nicomatic has used a 20-year know-how and experience in connector design in order to produce a product range that is different from usual catalogue offers. Knowing how to manufacture the contacts and designing specific and standard connectors helped us to reach a level of competence that allows us to deliver an innovative solution to the market today! Each single DMM connector is a personalized solution based on the use of standard components
