The basic definition of connector and its advantages

CONNECTOR. Domestically also known as connectors, plugs and sockets. Generally refers to electrical connectors. That is, a device that connects two active devices, transmitting current or signals. A connector is a separable element (except adapters) that is usually installed on a cable supplier or equipment for electrical connection of a transmission line system, that is, a device that connects two active devices to transmit current or signals.

Connector is a kind of component that our electronic 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. A connector is an indispensable part in an electronic device. Observe the path of current flow and you will always find one or more connectors. The form and structure of the connector are ever-changing. With different application objects, frequency, power, application environment, etc., there are various types of connectors. For example, the connector for lighting on the court and the connector for the hard drive, and the connector for lighting the rocket are very different. But no matter what kind of connector, we must ensure that the current flows smoothly and reliably. In general terms, the connection of the connector is not limited to current. In the rapid development of optoelectronic technology, in the optical fiber system, the carrier for transmitting signals is light. Glass and plastic replace the wires in ordinary circuits, but the optical signal Connectors are also used in the pathway, and they have the same function as circuit connectors.

For example, the connector for lighting on the court and the connector for the hard disk drive, and the connector for lighting the rocket are very different. But no matter what kind of connector, we must ensure that the current flows smoothly and reliably. In general terms, the connection of the connector is not limited to current.

connector is a motor system, which can provide a separable interface to connect two secondary electronic systems, and will not produce unacceptable effects on the operation of the system. The keywords in the definition are “motor 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 causes metallic contact between the mating surfaces of the interface. The reason why the application connector is in the first place is that the mating interface is separable. There are many reasons for the need for separability. It allows parts or subsystems to be manufactured independently and final assembly can be carried out in a major place. Separability also allows maintenance or upgrades of parts or subsystems without having to modify the entire system. Another reason for the application of separability is portability and support for peripheral expansion.

On the other hand, the separability in the definition introduces an additional interface between subsystems. This interface cannot introduce any “unacceptable effects”, especially in the characteristics of the system cannot be affected by telecommunications. These effects include such as Unacceptable distortion and signal degradation between systems, or power loss through the connector, power loss calculated in millivolt loss, will become the main functional design standard, so the power requirements of the motherboard will also increase.

Separability requirements and “unacceptability” limits are determined by the application of the connector. Separability 4 includes the number of mating cycles. The mating cycle refers to the force that the connector must provide without affecting its performance and the force necessary 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 need for mating power becomes more important. In order to provide more functionality, the position of the terminals 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 use and function of the connector.

Connector features and advantages:

1. Improve the production process

Connectors simplify the assembly process of electronic products. It also simplifies the mass production process;

2. Easy to repair

If an electronic component fails, the failed component can be quickly replaced when the connector is installed;

3. Easy to upgrade

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

4. Improve design flexibility

Using connectors gives engineers greater flexibility when designing and integrating new products, and when using components to form systems.
