Are board-to-board connectors, wire-to-board connectors, and wire-to-wire connectors the same type of connector?If they are not the same connector, what is the difference between them? This article explains the differences between the three connectors of board-to-board connector, wire-to-board connector and wire-to-wire connector.
Board to board connector:
Board-to-board connections are currently the most powerful connectors among all connector types. Currently, the main board-to-board connectors are 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.8mm, and 1.00m. Board-to-board connectors are mainly used in power systems, communication networks, financial manufacturing, industrial automation, medical equipment, office equipment, smart appliances, military manufacturing and other industries.
Wire to board connector:
The wire to board connector is the connector that connects the wires and the circuit board. The function of the connector is mainly to transmit power and signals. Therefore, the wire-to-board connector can be said to be the ancestor of all connectors, depending on various applications and requirements. There are many types of wire to board, most of which are distinguished by the distance between the pins and the current and voltage transmitted. The main application areas of wire-to-board connector products include commercial electronic equipment, household appliances and other general industrial and commercial fields using auxiliary circuits.
Wire to wire connector:
The wire-to-wire connector includes a wire-to-pair cable or a cable-to-cable cable, and is characterized in that two single-wire individuals or two of the two cables are permanently connected to each other. Wire-to-wire connectors are more commonly found in fixed-connection mid-line-to-wire connections and IDC connections. Wire-to-wire connector products are mainly used in automotive, communications, consumer electronics, data processing, industrial machinery and other fields.
