An alternative to the D-subminiature connector, the new microComp® Quicklatch is a 100% composite miniature quick connector designed particularly for use on in-flight entertainment (IFE) screens aboard commercial aircraft. It is 32% smaller and 45% lighter than a D-sub and can save as much as the equivalent of the weight of one passenger on modern civil aircraft. Released just six months ago, the microComp® Quicklatch is already being used on Airbus A350, A380 and A330 aircraft and Boeing B747, B787 and B777 aircraft. Production of the connector is expected to double each year.
