These connectors are single contacts that provide all of the benefits of a full connector solution without the additional component and assembly costs associated with the plastic insulator. Contacts do not need to be enclosed in a plastic housing, even in harsh industrial environments. Exposed contacts are no different than exposed solder pads on a PCB.
KYOCERA AVX’s connectors were developed to satisfy customers’ requests for cost-effective board-to-board and wire-to-board connector solutions that helped simplify the design and preserve board space while maintaining the robustness, reliability, and repairability of their existing connector solutions.
Industry response to KYOCERA AVX’s UL-certified and award-winning connectors is exceedingly positive, as they provide customers with instant cost savings and equivalent or improved performance, in addition to board space and/or height savings.
