Connector Type
           
   Your choices are...         
   BNC       Bayonet Neil-Councilman (BNC) connectors were designed for military applications, but are used widely in video and RF applications to 2 GHz. BNC connectors have a slotted outer conductor and a plastic dielectric that causes increasing losses at higher frequencies. BNC connectors are usable above 4 GHz as long as the slots radiate signals; however, these devices may not be mechanically stable to 10 GHz. Both 50Ω and 75Ω BNC connectors are available. BNC connectors are also known as bayonet navy connectors or baby Neil connectors. 
   XLR Connector       XLR microphone type connectors, 3-pin, balanced. 
   1/4'' Phone Plug / Jack       1/4" Phone jacks are essentially connectors used in audio systems: audio cables, amplifiers, speakers, etc. The diameter of the jack is 0.25". 
   1/8'' Phone Plug / Jack       1/8" Phone jacks are essentially connectors used in audio systems: audio cables, amplifiers, speakers, etc. The diameter of the jack is 0.125". 
   RCA       RCA connectors are round, press-on connectors commonly used for consumer-grade audio and composite video connections.  In most recent home stereo equipment, the jacks are color-coded as follows:  red (audio-Right), black or white (audio-Left) and yellow (composite video). 
   DVI       Digital video interface (DVI) connectors are used to transfer digital, audio or video signals. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary connectors. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Mounting Style
           
   Your choices are...         
   Bulkhead Mount       The connector has a plate (bulkhead) used to mount the device. 
   Cable End       The connector is mounted at the end of an electrical cable. 
   End Launch       End launch connectors are similar to right angle PC mounts in that the connector interface is parallel to the surface of the PC board. End launchers, however, are attached to the end or edge of the PC board by soldering. 
   2-hole Flange Mount       Flange mounted connectors are attached to panels by bolting the flange or riveting it in place through the two holes in the flange surface. 
   4-hole Flange Mount       Flange mounted connectors are attached to panels by bolting the flange or riveting it in place through the four holes in the flange surface. 
   PC Mount       Connectors directly attach to the printed circuit board through pre-drilled holes in the board. Soldering permanently attaches connectors to PCB traces. 
   Receptacle / Dummy Receptacle       Connectors with receptacle mounting are used in applications where the connector is required to fit a panel cutout. Dummy receptacles are receptacles that do not have provisions for attaching conductors. They are generally used for storage of a cable assembly connector plug. 
   In-line or Cable Receptacle       Intended for cable connecting - typically mated with a straight or 90-degree plug. 
   Jam Nut Receptacle       Intended for "D" shaped holes. 
   Solder / Weld Mount Receptacle       Intended for higher-pressure systems and permanent mounting. 
   Surface Mount (SMT)       Surface mount technology (SMT) places small components on the surface of a printed circuit board. Soldering permanently attaches connectors to PCB traces. Unlike PC mount connectors, however, SMT connectors do not require drilled holes in the PCB. Using smaller components allows for higher frequencies of operation, smaller board size, etc.   
   Wall or Box Mount Receptacle       Typically flanged and threaded for an accessory (backshell) and intended for permanent mounting. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary styles.

Gender / Contacts
   Gender       
   Your choices are...         
   Male / Plug       Male connectors or plugs are often referred to as header or free connectors. In coaxial RF connectors, the plug is normally the movable portion and is usually attached to a cable or removable sub-assembly. In shell type multiple-contact connectors, the plug usually contains the socket contacts and is mounted on the "hot" (rack) side of the system. Plugs mate with receptacles, jacks, outlets, etc. 
   Female / Jack       Female connectors or jacks are connecting devices into which plugs are inserted to make circuit connections. 
   Other       Other unlisted gender type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Number of Contacts       The number of contacts is the number of conductive elements that mate with a corresponding element to provide an electrical path. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Standards
   ARINC       ARINC is a technical standard for the avionic industry. An ARINC connector complies with this standard and is used to interface avionic equipment. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   RoHS Compliant       Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) is a European Union (EU) directive that requires all manufacturers of electronic and electrical equipment sold in Europe to demonstrate that their products contain only minimal levels of the following hazardous substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl, and polybrominated diphenyl ether. RoHS will become effective on July 1, 2006. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Military Connectors       Military connectors (MIL-SPEC) are shell type connectors built in accordance with military specifications. Their design takes into account the need to protect the connection from environmental factors, allowing them to be used in military and aerospace applications.

   Your choices are...         
   Cage Clamp       Electrical connections are made using a cage clamp. 
   Crimp       Crimp is the physical compression (deformation) of a contact wire barrel around a conductor to make an electrical and mechanical connection to the conductor. 
   IDC       Insulation displacement connectors (IDC) slice through the cable insulation to make a connection. Electrical connection is made when an insulated conductor is forced into a restrictive slot in the connection part of a contact, during which time the insulation is displaced, and the bare wire engages the sides of the slot. IDC are mass termination connectors for flat cables with contacts that displace the conductor insulation to complete termination. They eliminate the need to strip insulation. 
   PCB Solder / Solder Pin       In PCB solder or solder pin termination, electrical connection is made by soldering wires or pins onto a printed circuit board (PCB). 
   Screw       Electrical connections are made using screws. 
   Screw-on or Lugs       Electrical connections are made using screw-on or lugs. 
   Solder Cup       A solder cup is the end of a terminal or contact in which the conductor is inserted prior to being soldered. In solder cup terminations, soldering the connector onto the mounting location makes electrical connection. 
   Tabs       Electrical connections are made through quick connect tabs. 
   Through Hole / Pin       Through-hole technology (THT) mounts components on printed circuit boards by inserting component leads through holes in the board and then soldering. In pin termination, components are mounted on PCBs without soldering. 
   Wire Wrap       Electrical connection is made by using a special tool to wrap a solid stripped or unstripped wire around a terminal post containing a series of sharp edges. 
   Other       Other unlisted terminal types.
