The connector, also known as the connector commonly used by engineers, is used to connect two circuit boards or electronic devices to realize the transmission of power or signals. Through the connector, the circuit can be modularized, the assembly process of the electronic product is simplified, and the product is easy to maintain and upgrade.
There are many types of connectors. Common types include communication interface terminals, wiring terminals, wire-to-board connectors, board-to-board connectors, etc. Each category can be subdivided into several categories, such as:
Board-to-board connectors include pin headers, PC104, board-to-board connectors, etc.;
