Connectors

From the smallest board-mount header to the largest power plug, the world of connectors encompasses one of the most diverse product ranges of any industry.

Connectors are an essential component in almost every electrical and electronic device in the world. They are called upon to deliver power, signal and data in some of the most demanding environments, whilst modern trends require them to be smaller and more compact for each new generation of equipment.

Connector manufacturers are constantly developing new techniques, using innovative materials and creating fresh designs to make connectors more capable, more robust and more cost-effective. In this design centre, we look at some of the most exciting developments in connectors and see how they could transform your new design.
