General Specifications
   Applications / Categories       
   Your choices are...         
   Automotive Connectors       Connectors are mainly used by the automotive industry. 
   Battery / Power Supply Connectors       Battery and power supply connectors include standard devices such as 9-volt, AAA, AA, C, and D batteries as well as specialized devices such as NiCad batteries. 
   D-Sub       D-Subminiature (D-sub) connectors have a mating face that is shaped like the letter "D". This shape provides polarization since D-shaped male and female connectors fit together in only one way. 
   Internal Computer Connectors       Internal computer connectors are used to connect devices inside computers. Examples include power connectors, RAM memory slots (SIMM, DIMM, etc.), LEDs, processors, etc. 
   Micro Connectors and Nano Connectors       Micro connectors and Nano connectors exhibit contacts with a pitch of 0.05" (micro) and 0.025'' (Nano), respectively.  
   Rectangular Connectors, Heavy Duty       Heavy-duty rectangular connectors are designed to accommodate large electrical loads and direct signals under a multitude of operating conditions. 
   USB Connectors       Universal serial bus (USB) connectors support USB standard ports. USB is an external bus standard that supports data transfer rates of 12 Mbps in version 1.1 and 480 Mbps in version 2.0.

   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. 
   MicroTCA       MicroTCA is a bus and protocol system that is based on the AdvancedMC mezzanine card standard. MicroTCA allows the AdvancedMC card to be plugged directly into the MicroTCA backplane. This means that the AdvancedMC card can be used without a carrier card. This is not the case for the AdvancedTCA (ATCA) system; however, which needs an AdvancedMC carrier card to connect the modules. 
   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). 
   SMA       Subminiature-A (SMA) connectors are intended for use on semi-rigid cables in components. They directly interface the cable dielectric without air gaps.  They are not intended for permanent connections. 
   SMB       Subminiature-N (SMB) connectors are snap-mount connectors that are available either in 50Ω or 75Ω impedances.  They are used for frequencies from DC to 4GHz. 
   SMC       Subminiature C (SMC) connectors are 50Ω or 75Ω devices with a frequency range of 7 - 10 GHz. They are smaller than SMA connectors, but can accept flexible cables with diameters as large as 3.17 mm or 0.125". 
   TNC       Threaded Neil-Concelman (TNC) connectors are similar in size to BNC connectors but feature a threaded coupling nut for applications that require performance to 11 GHz. TNC connectors are durable, reliable devices that are widely used in the cellular and mobile communication industry for equipment cabling and antenna interfaces. 
   Type F       Type F connectors have a screw-type coupling and frequency range up to 1.5 GHz. Applications include CATV, TV, and antennas. 
   Type N       Type N connectors include an integrated gasket to protect against environmental ingress and create an air gap between the center and the outer conductor. They primarily have 50Ω impedance, but 75Ω versions for CATV, are available. 
   UHF / PL259       Ultra high frequency (UHF) connectors are economical, all-purpose connectors designed with non-constant impedance for use in comparatively low voltage and low frequency applications such as citizens' band (CB) communications systems. UHF connectors are also used in public address systems, closed circuit television (CCTV), civil defense, landing systems, ground control apparatus, ship-to-shore communications, and mobile radio equipment hookups between antenna and transmitters or receivers. 
   Mini-UHF       Mini-UHF connectors are a miniature version of the original UHF connector. They feature a threaded coupling mechanism for reliable mating. Mini-UHF connectors are designed for use in cellular mobile telephone systems where size, weight and cost are critical. With crimp cable termination for low installation costs, these connectors provide excellent RF performance in applications through 2.5 GHz.

   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.

   Terminal Options      Terminals are devices designed to terminate a conductor to be affixed usually to a post, stud, chassis, or other conductor or the like in order to establish electrical connection.
   Your choices are...         
   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. 
   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. 
   Other       Other unlisted terminal types.

   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.
   Contact Size (AWG)       An electrical contact is the termination of an electrical wire in the connector's pin or socket.  Contact size, also referred to as "Termination Size," is the maximum diameter wire the connector can accommodate.    Wire size is measured according to the American Wire Gauge (AWG) standard. In North America, wire area is measured by the American Wire Gauge (AWG) to indicate conductor size. The AWG is used to measure certain conductors including copper. The higher the AWG number the thinner the wire. This is because AWG stems from a measurement that represented the number of times the copper wire was run through a wire machine that reduced the diameter of the wire. Thus 24-gauge wire went through the machine 6 more times than 18-gauge wire. 
   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.
