Electronic Connector Handbook: Theory and Applications
First-Ever Electronic Connector Bible If you're looking for a better way to a connect electronic components so they're both manufacturable and maintainable, reach for Electronic Connector Handbook. In this Handbook, experts help you choose wisely from among today's bewildering array of permanent (including soldered and mechanical) and separable connectors for consumer, computer, communications and other devices and systems. The perfect tool for maximizing the price/performance of power and signal applications alike, it lets you: Develop an instant background in contact interfaces, finishes, materials, designs and housings Master all 6 levels of connector types - including those for board-to-board, wire-to-board, wire-to-wire and coaxial connections Minimize performance tradeoff and test connectors and sockets to meet demanding mechanical, electrical and environmental standards Engineer connector thermoplastics - and choose from among the top 12 engineering polymers Much, much more
