What is the board end connector?

A connector is a device used to connect different circuits in an electronic device. With the development of electronic equipment, there are more and more types of connectors. This article will introduce the classification and application of connectors in detail, and focus on board end connectors.


First, the classification of connectors


According to the structure of the connector classification, can be divided into pin type connector, socket type connector, pin type connector, clamp type connector and so on. According to the range of use classification, it can be divided into universal connectors, high-frequency connectors, high-speed data transmission connectors, medium and low speed power connectors and so on. According to the purpose of the connector classification, it can be divided into audio connectors, video connectors, sensor connectors, power connectors and so on.


Second, the application of connectors

Connectors are widely used in all kinds of electronic equipment, such as computers, mobile phones, televisions, audio, cars and so on. Different types of connectors play different roles in different devices, such as socket connectors are widely used in computer motherboards, pin connector is widely used in mobile phones and automotive electronic equipment and so on.


Third, what is the board connector

A board end connector is a flat, parallel endpoint to the PCB. It is usually used to connect the internal circuits of circuit boards or electrical equipment in order to connect different circuits. The board end connector is usually composed of two parts: one is a connector, and the other is a socket. Sockets are usually contained on the circuit board, while connectors are mounted on the components connected to the circuit board. Board end connectors are also commonly referred to as PCI connectors or card slot connectors.


Fourth, the classification of board end connectors


According to the structure of the plate end connector, it can be classified into 45 degree plate end connector, 90 degree plate end connector, 180 degree plate end connector, etc. 45 degree plate end connectors are generally suitable for tight connections, while 180 degree plate end connectors are suitable for longer, more flexible connections. In addition, according to the use of the occasion is divided into pin connector and socket connector and so on.


Fifth, the application of board end connectors


The board end connector is one of the most widely used connectors in the circuit board. They are usually used to connect card slots. For example, in computer motherboards, board end connectors are commonly used to connect various card slots, such as PCI, ISA, AGP, and PCI-E card slots. In addition, board end connectors are also widely used in network switches, routers, televisions, audio and other equipment.


Sixth, the advantages and disadvantages of board end connectors


The advantage of board end connectors is that they are able to connect the circuit board well and allow for the presence of multiple card slots in electronic devices. This versatility and connectivity makes it an integral part of product design. Another advantage is that they are highly reliable, can withstand high-speed data transmission and vibration, and can withstand multiple insertions. The disadvantage is that they take up more space when designing the circuit board. At the same time, the on-board connector also requires some technical capability to be installed on the circuit board, which also increases the cost.


To sum up, the connector is one of the essential accessories of electronic equipment, with the development of electronic equipment, the type of connector and the use of more and more wide. The board end connector is an important kind of connector, which plays an important role in the circuit board design.
