A broad range of connectors are available for medical, consumer, industrial, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications in which small size and high-reliability performance are critical. Available as a physical sample and an interactive online simulation, the interconnect sample kit consists of a printed circuit board (PCB) loaded with 15 examples of board-to-board, wire-to-board, battery, and pogo pin connectors, including several of the STRIPT UL-approved, insulator-less single contacts.

The physical version of the sample kit features a white lid designed to simulate a replaceable or disposable module, so users can experience how AVX’s vertical-mate battery connectors eliminate angular insertion in pluggable module applications. Also with the lid, users can see how pogo pin contacts mate with modules in cradle and docking applications, where they can function as the charging, data transfer, or programming interface to a portable device.

The virtual interconnect sample kit allows users to navigate the board with their cursor, and provides brief descriptions of each connector category, summary information about each series, and links to each product page.
