Much of the focus on modern portable devices relates to their increasing functionality, lifetime and convenience of operation. This would not be possible without the availability of highly reliable and proven connector technologies that facilitate miniaturization and connectivity.

In this white paper, we look at the fundamentals of spring-loaded connectors (SLCs) and how to specify them for optimum performance in modern applications. The paper describes methods by which manufacturers assess and demonstrate reliability, as well as considering some novel ways in which SLC’s have enabled applications.
