Global Printed Circuit Board Connectors Market: Introduction

Printed circuit board (PCB) connectors are a type of electrical connector that are made up of housing and terminals. Housing is the structure used to contain the terminals and protect the electrical contacts from short-circuit. Terminals are pins in connector which helps to provide electrical conduction. These terminals are made-up of phosphor bronze, beryllium copper, copper alloys, brass, tin, and gold. While the connectors casing is made-up of plastic. Printed circuit board can be designed in variety of settings to support multiple signal requirements. Printed circuit board connectors are classified into Wire-to-Board Connectors, Board-to-Board Connectors, Wire-to-Wire Connectors, Backplane Connectors, and FFC/FPC Connectors. These connectors offer significant performance in embedded display port, and low-voltage differential signaling applications. The use of PCB connectors in electrical circuit offer various benefits such as it saves money and space by using compact terminal blocks for high current applications, and it is easy and safe to use.
