What are the types of wire-to-board connectors? What are their advantages?

Line-to-Board connectors are products used to connect different circuit boards together. They have good transmission capabilities and are mainly used in industries such as finance, manufacturing, medical equipment, communication networks, appliances, and office equipment.

Based on the connection method between circuit boards, Line-to-Board connectors are further classified into different types, including the commonly used and affordable Pin Header and Socket connectors, compact and inexpensive FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit) connectors, and larger-sized, thick Line-to-Board connectors. When dealing with various types of Line-to-Board connectors, it is crucial to make the correct selection.

In today’s trend of miniaturization and refinement, connectors are no exception. Integrated connectors exemplify simplicity by compressing the contact points, offering the following advantages:

  1. They use heat-resistant and temperature-resistant plastic housing, allowing for a wider range of applications.
  2. By compressing the contact points, they improve efficiency and area of connection with the local gold-plated subboard, enhancing flexibility and convenience of use.
  3. The contact area is designed with many irregularities to prevent accidental detachment and resulting damage. This design also reduces solder paste thickness and improves accuracy.
