In the new era, in order to meet new demands, pogo pin connector products are developing towards small size, narrow pitch, and multi-function. In addition, surface mounting, composite and embedded directions are also future trends. The volume and dimensions of the connector are becoming more and more miniaturized and chip-shaped.
The miniaturization of electronic products also puts forward the requirements of miniaturization or even miniaturization for its matching connectors. For example, portable handheld digital products such as mobile phones that require high connector miniaturization. The number of contacts and contact specifications of traditional connectors are generally unchangeable. If users need to change the number of contacts and specifications of contacts, they must switch to other connectors. However, the emergence of modular modular connector technology is more difficult to change. A good solution to this problem.
The rapid development of the market has accelerated the technological innovation of the connector, and the design level and processing methods of the connector have also been greatly improved. Industry experts said that semiconductor chip technology is becoming the technical driving force for the development of connectors at all levels of interconnection. For example, with the rapid development of 0.5mm pitch chip packaging to 0.25mm pitch, level I interconnection (inside the IC device) and level II The number of device pins for interconnection (device-board interconnection) ranges from hundreds to thousands of lines.
In recent years, fiber optic connectors, USB2.0 high-speed connectors, wired broadband connectors, and fine-pitch connectors have been increasingly used in various portable/wireless electronic devices, and even higher-speed USB3.0 has appeared on the market. Therefore, the market application hot spots of the connector are also changing accordingly.
The electronic process of global enterprises and markets is getting faster and faster. In the financial crisis environment, the Chinese government has invested heavily in three networks, smart grids, automobiles, and rail transit. It can be seen that the market’s high-speed interconnection of connectors, The requirements for current resistance are getting higher and higher; from the perspective of consumer electronics, applications similar to Internet TV are hot, and they involve many antenna applications. TV system manufacturers need to set up antennas within a very small distance.
Connector miniaturization and energy saving are inevitably important trends in the development of the home appliance industry; the complex body control, remote communication and other functions in the automotive electronic system also pose challenges to the miniaturization, intelligence, environmental protection and high reliability of the connector .
