Bead’s True Grip pin is a hybrid design that combines the strength and reliability of through-hole interconnects with the ease of surface-mount processing. Earlier this year, Bead Electronics was granted US patent no. 8,087,281 B2 for the hybrid pin.
Bead’s design is the first end-to-end pin produced with a wide flange that can be automatically inserted into printed circuit boards. The wide flange provides a defined seating plane for insertion depth control, a robust shoulder for seating the pin without distorting it, and a large surface area for soldering. The resulting 360-degree solder fillet produces a mechanically strong, low resistance electrical connection that is perfect for high reliability applications.
