Due to UL approvals, chain flex requirements and increasing pole numbers, the outer diameters of cables tend to become bigger. M12 connectors meanwhile have been established as an industrial standard for transmitting shielded signals in the field of automation. Binder therefore offers an 8 to 10 mm outlet version in addition to the shielding ring versions for 4 to 6 and 6 to 8 mm cable diameters.
The shielding braid is connected to the housing via a shielding ring. Eight-pole screw clamp versions are offered in a first step. Other options will follow, if requested. If mounted, mated and locked correctly, the connection offers a protection degree of IP 67.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
