In today’s cost-sensitive world, designers are often driven to specify the lowest cost solution for every aspect of their designs. This ensures their solution is competitively priced and their company remains profitable. However, specifying a low-cost, low-quality connector solution can result in premature failure, considerable re-work costs and damage to reputations.

This whitepaper looks at the technology, materials and testing behind machined pin spring-loaded connectors (SLCs). We consider numerous ways these precision-made interconnects can ultimately provide better solutions, improved efficiency and lower overall costs versus other connector types.
