Connectors Common terminology Analysis
Alloy : A combination of two or more metals.
Contact : The electrically conductive part of a connecting member is designed to provide contacts (position) of electrical or separation.
Contact areas: Contact surfaces that cause electrical connections with IC leads or contacts.
Contact Assistance: Resistance at the junction position is determined by the terminal shape, contact area, electroplating and forward force.
DIN: European standard for particular connector characteristics in the electronics industry.
Gauge: A number that defines the size of the diameter of the line.
Header: A circular or square insert contained in one or more rows of an insulator.
IC (integrated circuit): seed-body circuit.
IDC (connectors stripped by insulators): A quick and reliable way to connect a flat cable to a connector.
Insertion Force : The force required to insert a male wire into the mother's socket.
Insertion resistance : The impedance value that the insulator can withstand between two terminals.
Insulator: a very poor conductivity material. An dielectric material.
Micro-inch: one out of 10,000 inches for plating thickness.
Package : a body circuit chip is connected to an external wire rack and prevents damage.
Plating : A method of metal with a very thin and precise thickness of a power-immersed body.
Polarization (polarity): terminals and leads are arranged, which prohibit plugs and sockets from being fitted for coupling.
Resistance : The current flow through the medium, its ease of movement.
Plating : A corrosive test using a hair-test connector for electroplating or tightness.
Shell : The shell of a lead receptacle, often made of an iron shell, which is fixed by a precise mechanism to hold a terminal insert.
Stand off (thermal device): A projecting structure at the bottom of a connector to improve the connector from the printed circuit board and help solder fill space in the form of board inspection and flux clearance and cleaning.
Terminals (terminal contact): a round, square, or other form of metal support for coupling connectors or P.C. plates.
Withdraw force : The force required to remove another lead from a terminal, in general, must have at least 0.5 ounce (ounce).
ZIF: Zero insertion Force
