Connector. Also called plug and socket. Generally refers to electrical connectors. That is, a device that connects two active devices will transmit current or signals. Connectors are detachable components (except adapters) and are usually installed on cable suppliers or equipment to electrically connect transmission line systems, that is, devices that connect two active devices to transmit current or signals.

Basic definition of connector and its advantages

Connectors are components that our electrical engineering technicians often contact. Its function is very simple: build a bridge of communication between the blocked or isolated circuits in the circuit, so that the current flows, and the circuit realizes the predetermined function. Connectors are an essential part of electronic equipment. Observe the current path and you will always find one or more connectors. The form and structure of connectors are constantly changing. For different application objects, frequency, power, application environment, etc., there are various types of connectors. For example, the lighting connector on the court is different from the hard drive connector and the rocket lighting connector. But no matter which connector is used, it must ensure that the current flows smoothly and reliably. In general, the connection of the connector is not limited to current. With the rapid development of optoelectronic technology, in the optical fiber system, the carrier for transmitting signals is light. Glass and plastic replace wires in ordinary circuits, but optical signal connectors are also used in this path, and they have the same function as circuit connectors.

The basic definition of the connector and its advantages and characteristics will produce unacceptable results. The keywords in the definition are “kinematic system”, “separable” and “unacceptable effect”. The connector is a motor system because it is electrically connected by mechanical methods. As will be discussed, the deflection of the mechanical spring will generate a force between the two parts of the mating, which will cause metal contact between the mating surfaces of the interface. The reason why the application connector is placed first is because the mating interface is detachable. There are many reasons for separability. It allows parts or subsystems to be manufactured independently, and final assembly can be carried out in the main place. Separability also allows parts or subsystems to be maintained or upgraded without having to modify the entire system. Another reason for application separability is portability and support for peripheral expansion.

On the other hand, the separability in the definition introduces additional interfaces between subsystems. This interface does not introduce any “unacceptable impact”, especially in terms of system characteristics. Unacceptable distortion and signal degradation between systems, power loss through connectors, power loss in millivolt losses, etc. will become the main functional design standards, so the power requirements of the motherboard will also increase.

Whether separation and “unacceptability” restrictions are required depends on the application of the connector. Separability 4 includes the number of mating cycles. The mating cycle refers to the force that a connector must provide without affecting its performance and the force required to mate with another connector. Typical mating cycle requirements range from tens of cycles of internal connectors to thousands of cycles of peripheral devices (such as PCMCIA type connectors). Due to the increase in the number of circuits or functions and the interconnection of connectors, the demand for matching power supplies has become more important. In order to provide more functions, the terminal position on the connector must also be increased, which results in a higher connector mating force. The number of terminals varies from tens to thousands depending on the purpose and function of the connector.

The basic definition of the connector and its advantages and features

Features and advantages of connectors:

1. Improve the production process

The connector simplifies the assembly process of electronic products. It also simplifies the mass production process;

2. Easy to maintain

If the electronic component fails, you can quickly replace the failed component after installing the connector;

3. Easy to upgrade

With the advancement of technology, components can be updated when the connector is installed, and the old components can be replaced with new and more complete components;

 4. Increase design flexibility

Using connectors allows engineers greater flexibility in designing and integrating new products and using components to form systems.
