Minnovate, R & D division


Minnovate is Minnesota Wire's Research & Development division, which is an industry leader in non-metallic wire, medical wire, stretchy wire, cable, noise suppression and interconnect capabilities. We obtain funding through the execution of high technology R&D grants to develop materials and systems that create products of novel properties and enhanced interconnect performance proficiencies. Minnovate's purpose is to improve the signal integrity and mechanical properties of the traditional interconnect performance infrastructure and to keep progressively moving it forward. You will see many of our interconnect performance technological advances in military wire, medical wire, stretchy wire, non-metallic wire and industrial wire applications.

Interconnect Performance

Our vision of interconnect performance is exhibited in the commercial areas of wire development where we are currently pursuing R&D programs. These efforts have led to the invention of the world's first stretchy wire and UltraLight series of non-metallic wire conductors. These new technologies will have a profound effect on the continued development of medical wiresindustrial wires and military wire in the future.

Minnovate R&D Wire Types

  • Elastomeric Interconnect Performance Solutions using Stretchy Wire (iStretch Series of Products)
  • Prognostic Health Management (PHM) Medical Wires for in-situ monitoring and prognosis of faults using two technologies (spread-spectrum time domain reflectometry (SSTDR) and CNT sacrificial shields)
  • Non-Metallic Wire using carbon nanotubes (CNT) (iStealth Series of Products)
  • Fatigue Resistant Wire using unique polymers, elastomeric wire and/or CNT
  • Embedded Wire for airborne applications
  • Line Replaceable Units (LRU) which house circuitry inside molds
  • Arc suppression incorporated into industrial noise suppression wires which greatly decreases noise from primaries and enhances the life of relays and circuitry.
