Miniature Connectors Have Enough Strength

The miniature connector is used for the connection between the mouse, keyboard and other input devices and the host, including insulating body, shielding shell and several terminals. wherein, the insulating body has a plurality of plug holes which can be plugged into and the socket holes of the terminals which are connected by the plug hole, the head of the terminal is accommodated in the terminal receiving hole, Miniature Connectors and the rear surface of the insulator is stretched out and welded to the printed circuit board, and the cylindrical shielding shell is coated on the periphery of the insulating body. The shielding shell at the bottom of the left and right side of each has a pin, each pin is equipped with a step part, the step support in the upper surface of the circuit board, Miniature Connectors two steps and terminals of the tail together constitute a positioning surface, so that the micro-connector on the motherboard on the location of solid and reliable.

It is not enough to simply reduce the size of the micro-linker. must also be strong enough to meet the same performance standards as the large connectors, while also requiring sufficient strength to further assemble into the finished product.

While the quality and durability of micro-connectors are increasing, Miniature Connectors the use of different products also increases. The market for micro-connectors includes small, micro and micro-miniature connectors, which are being expanded for a variety of reasons.

One factor is the booming market for commercial products, including mobile phones and other handheld devices. In the process of increasing the use of such products, there is also a need for components that are smaller in size and shape. Other major markets include aerospace and defense and health care. Miniature Connectors The size of the electronic equipment is shrinking, the structure is more complex, the space on the printed circuit board (PCB) will be more valuable, which will require smaller connectors.

The growing demand for miniature connectors introduces product development for new applications such as extreme conditions. For example, Molex recently launched a multiport RF (MPRF) coaxial cable to the plate connector, this is a small I/O equipment, in high vibration conditions can provide a solid electrical connection effect, the minimum number of plug times up to 500 times. Although the release time is short, the MPRF connector is expected to be used in a variety of major aerospace and defense applications. For example, Miniature Connectors one of the applications that MPRF can bring advantages is in the field of military transport vehicles, which can withstand very strong vibrations during use. Medical devices are another important area of application.

Non-magnetic characteristics

For other types of miniature connectors, healthcare has become a critical application area, where connectors are generally used for devices such as microscopy and probes. Miniature Connectors The connector for medical devices must be non-magnetic, which requires replacing the nickel coating that is commonly used in the Electroless Ni-P connector. Other applications include medical devices such as nuclear magnetic resonance machines and computerized tomography scanners, but such devices tend to use larger connectors.

Assembly challenges

One of the challenges common to all users of micro connectors is how to construct a cable assembly. This requires a skilled technician to trim a small cable and end up with a miniature connector. For example, the outer diameter of one contact in an SMP connector is only 0.015 inches, Miniature Connectors while the SMPM connector's contact diameter is only 0.012 inches.

In this way, a combination of the micro-connector assembly process will usually require a certain degree of automation, for example, using a tape-and-tray package, where each component is provided on a tape or plastic tape on a pallet, and the pallet is loaded in an automated pickup machine, and the components are mounted on a printed circuit board.
