Ardent Concepts has completed the installation of new automation equipment for the manufacturing of Connect-R™ brand high performance compression mount connectors used in a broad range of semiconductor and military applications.

“We have over 2 years and a significant amount of capital invested in building the necessary equipment to create a fully automated ‘lights out’ manufacturing process for our patented area array connectors” says Gordon Vinther, President of Ardent. “This in-house capability provides us with significant cost savings and allows us to compete on a global scale with other high volume connector suppliers as never before.”

“Molded Connect-R™ area array connectors are typically used by large IC manufacturers such as Intel, LSI and Marvell as well as by advanced military aerospace subcons such as BAE and Raytheon” says Steve Cleveland, Vice President of Business Development. “Automated manufacturing in the USA gives us tight control over process and quality and helps solidify Ardent as a domestic, ITAR compliant supplier for mission critical military and aerospace programs.”

Customers can access technical data and detailed specifications on Connect-R™ technology though the dedicated website as well as through the corporate page.
