1. What is a connector
Electronic connectors generally refer to the connection units between various electronic components, mainly as chip-to-circuit board, circuit board-to-circuit board and circuit board-to-box electronic signal connection and transmission. In terms of types, it can be divided into substrate connectors, angular Connectors, cylindrical connectors, and popular PCMCIA specification connectors, etc.
Although the definition of electronic connectors has always been unclear, the scope of its coverage, general understanding does not include high-voltage, high-current electrical appliances or electrical connectors other than power plugs or sockets: electrical switches do not include Ouchi. In Japan Most people in the industry directly use English (Connector) transliteration, sometimes called [continuous parts], and in mainland China, use [electrical connectors] or [electrical connectors] including connectors and switches, regardless of electronics, A broad term for electrical appliances. In terms of application, most electronic connectors are used in computers, telecommunications, aviation, automobiles and various instruments.
2. Connector application
Electronic connectors are used in electrical products. As the name suggests, they play the role of electronic numbers. Or the connection of components. It belongs to a multi-component combination or assembly product, and covers metal sheets, surface plating, precision machining and plastic molding and other key technologies As the transmission and connection of the electronic number, if the electronic connector has a problem, it will cause the electronic component and even the entire device to fail. The entire connector includes two main parts: the terminal and the plastic. In addition to the choice of material, the quality of the electroplating and die All will affect the quality of the product, and of course the plastic part is the same.
3. Manufacture of connectors
The manufacturing of electronic connectors can be divided into two parts, metal and plastic, from design to finished product. In addition to material selection, the main work of metal parts is electroplating and punching; the work of plastic molds is plastic mold design, mold opening, and injection Formed, and then assembled with metal components to form an electronic connector. Electronic connectors are used in electrical products. As the name suggests, they play the role of electronic signals or the connection of components. They are a kind of multiple combined or assembled products, and cover metal sheets. Surface electroplating, precision machining and plastic molding and other key technologies. As the transmission and connection of electronic signals, if the electronic connector has problems, it will cause part of the problem. In addition to the selection of materials, the quality of electroplating and die will affect the quality of the product. Of course, the plastic part is the same. Its manufacturing includes five major technologies: 1. Die technology 2. Injection molding technology 3. Electroplating technology 4. Assembly technology 5. Inspection technology. Due to the trend of connectors becoming thinner and smaller and SMT, Therefore, the required manufacturing technology also needs to quickly improve its accuracy requirements, and at the same time, the manufacturer's precision concept is also changed. It is necessary to manufacture precision connectors. Otherwise, in the future connector market, they will be eliminated. Out of the game, because the quality cannot compete with the electronic components and even the entire device fails. The entire connector includes two main parts: terminals and plastic terminals.
