This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) documents and establishes common industry practices, and screening and qualification testing, of Plastic Encapsulated Microcircuits (PEMs) for use in military and avionics application environments.
This specification covers corrosion prevention and mitigation aspects in Avionics, Electronics, and Electrical Wire Interconnect Systems (EWIS) from the design through the life cycle of aerospace and other systems.
This specification covers three series of environment resisting, circular, miniature electrical connectors (plugs and receptacles) with removable crimp and/or nonremovable solder contacts, and accessories. The connectors are only recommended for replacement and are not specified for aircraft applications (refer to AS50881).
This document establishes limits or parameters for designing bolt heads with proper control of flowlines to assure sufficient strength to resist stresses induced by static or dynamic loads without being affected by lightening and lockwire holes.
