Components used in industrial computing applications to conduct and transfer signals or power from one cable to another.
Board Mounted Connectors or Circuit Board Connectors are connectors that can be used as components embedded on a computer board.
Board to board connectors are used to connect printed circuit boards (PCB). Each terminal connects to a PCB.
Centronics connectors are standard parallel interface devices for connecting printers and other peripherals such as portable disc drives, tape backup drives, and CD-ROM players to computers.
Coaxial connectors are composed of an insulated central conducting wire wrapped in another cylindrical conductor (the shield). The cable is usually wrapped in another insulating layer and an outer protective layer. Coaxial cables and connectors have the capacity to carry vast quantities of information. They are typically used in high-speed data and CATV applications.
DIN connectors are high frequency, multi-pin, electrical connectors that meet standards established by Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN), a German national organization for standardization. The ends of DIN connectors are round, notched, and protected by a metal skirt to ensure that pins line up correctly.
D-subminiature or D-sub connectors are sturdy electrical connectors with a mating face shaped like the letter D. They provide polarization because male and female connectors can fit together in only one way.
Card edge connectors are edge-on connectors designed for single-sided or double-sided printed circuit boards (PCBs).
Electrical connectors are devices that join electrical circuits together. Male connectors plug into receptacles, jacks, and outlets. Female connectors contain sockets to receive other devices.
Fiber Channel connectors are high-speed connectors used in Fiber Channel systems.
IEEE 1394 connectors are used to connect FireWire® devices such as host controllers, adapters, hard drives, hubs, repeaters, and card readers. FireWire, a registered trademark of Apple Computer, is a communications protocol for the transmission of data, video, and audio over a single cable at very high bit rates.
Flexible circuits use polyimide films and other foldable substrates to meet the requirements of complex electronic manufacturing applications.
Gender changers are devices that change the end of a cable into another type, allowing two cable assemblies with the same or different genders to mate.
IC interconnect components interface or connect a microelectronic semiconductor chip to a board or larger scale device.
IC package converters and adapters are electronic interconnect devices that are used to interface different types of integrated circuit (IC) sockets.
IC pin probes are used to test integrated circuits (ICs).
IC probing adapaters and analysis adapters are interconnect devices for in-circuit testing of integrated circuit packages. The adapter provides connections for test equipment and logic analyzers.
IC sockets and headers are board-mounted female connectors that serve as carriers for integrated circuit (IC) chips.
Instrument power connectors and computer power connectors are used to connect a computer’s power supply to a hard disk, floppy disk, compact disk (CD), digital video disk (DVD), or other type of disk drive.
Micro connectors and nano connectors exhibit contact pitches of 0.05'' (micro) and 0.025'' (nano), respectively.
Modular connectors and RJ connectors includes two similar, yet distinct styles of connectors. Modular connectors are made of "plug-in units" which can be added together to make the system larger, improve the capabilities, or expand its size. Registered Jack (RJ) is a telephone and data jack application specific connector registered with the FCC.
Panel interface connectors (PICs) are devices installed in the outside of a panel that houses a PLC, a computer, or other devices. The PIC allows the user to interface the PLC or the computer without opening the panel door avoiding potential safety hazards. Power receptacles and communication ports can be placed in a number of combinations to produce various customizable products.
PC card connectors are used to connect PC cards, CompactFlash cards, and other devices to computers.
PCB terminal blocks are modular, insulated devices that mount on printed circuit boards (PCBs) and secure two or more wires together. Some have integral pin terminals and mount through holes in the board. Others plug into PCB-mounted pin strips.
USB connectors are used with universal serial bus (USB) ports. They can be used to connect USB products together, or to connect USB wires and peripherals to other standard port types.
Wire-to-board connectors are used to interconnect printed circuit boards (PCBs) by using connectors attached to wires.
