Elimination of solder from electronic circuit assembly has been suggested as one way to avoid solder’s many shortcomings. Here, Joe Fjelstad makes the case for solderless assembly. Soldering is a key step in the manufacturing process of electronic assemblies and has been since the earliest days of the electronics industry. It is also one of Read More >>
The new Mill-Max discrete right-angle pins are available in four diameters. Mill-Max introduced a series of discrete right-angle pins. The 37XX-0 pins are available in four different diameters and are suitable for plugging into receptacles and/or soldering onto printed circuit boards. Four standard diameters are available: .020″, .025″, .030″, and .040″ (0.51mm, 0.63mm, 0.76mm, and 1.02mm). These Read More >>
Press-fit technology is widely applied in multiple automotive applications because it meets the needs of smaller, lighter, more durable components in the latest vehicle designs. The basic principle of a press-fit connection is that a contact terminal is pressed into a printed circuit board (PCB). There are two types of press-fit pins – the solid Read More >>

When soldering semi-rigid cables to PCBs, a number of design considerations must be taken into account to maximize performance. This information was provided by Micro-Coax. Semi-rigid cables can be soldered directly to PCBs and are an excellent solution for transmitting amplified signals across PCBs. The cables offer outstanding shielding and insertion loss characteristics, thus improving Read More >>
December 2013 – Has the traditional PCB backplane approach reached its data speed limits? Many in the electronic manufacturing industry think so, and search for an alternate means to achieve data rates and throughput that will take us into the next generation of information technology. High-speed cable technology may be the answer.
December 2013 – PCB terminals with quick connection technology offer an ideal alternative to costly and time-consuming methods of transferring power to PCBs, as they allow cables to be connected quickly, safely, and without tools in a wide range of applications.
