A binding post is a threaded device used to connect single conductor wires to other wires through a panel or board. These devices usually include a banana jack within the threaded nut and may also contain other connector types. The characteristics are type, head style, termination thread, current rating, and material. The head type is fluted, hex, knurled, and smooth – spring loaded with a termination thread of M4, M6, ¼-32, 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, and 10-32.
Banana and Tip Connectors - Jacks, Plugs
Banana and tip connectors are interconnect devices typically encountered in context of general purpose test equipment such as multimeters and variable output power supplies of modest capacity, where flexibility and price are dominant considerations. The more common banana type is characterized by leaf spring elements that run axially along the plug, providing retention when inserted into a simple tubular jack opening. The somewhat smaller tip connectors reverse this concept using a simple cylindrical plug, with no retention agent incorporated into the jack component.

Circular Connectors - Backshells and Cable Clamps
Circular connectors are interconnect products characterized by a cross section that is generally circular in shape and have contacts that are typically arranged on a polar coordinate system, rather than on a rectangular grid or coaxially. For products marketed as modular connector systems allowing configuration of a desired connector from a catalog of interoperable components, backshell and cable clamp components are respectively used to cover the non-mating end of the connector and to provide strain relief for attached cabling.
Circular Connectors - Contacts
Circular Connector Contacts are male or female terminals that are used in circular connectors. The available types are coaxial, fluidic, machined, power, quadrax, radsok, signal, stamped, thermocouple, triax, and twinax. They come as either pins or sockets and range in contact size from 0 to 23.
Circular Connectors - Housings
Circular connectors are interconnect products characterized by a cross section that is generally circular in shape and have contacts that are typically arranged on a polar coordinate system, rather than on a rectangular grid or coaxially. For products marketed as modular connector systems allowing configuration of a desired connector from a catalog of interoperable components, housing components are the portion of the connector into which contacts or contact insert assemblies are inserted, and to which supporting components such as backshells are attached.
Circular Connectors or circular interconnects are plugs and receptacles that are made in a circular look with multiple pins or sockets. The characteristics are connector type, number of positions, shell size-insert, shell size MIL, mounting type, and fastening type.

They are intended for use with coaxial cable materials, which consist of multiple concentric conductors constructed so as to make a suitable transmission line for high frequency signals.
Coaxial Connectors (RF) - Terminators
Products in this family consist of a standard connector for coaxial cable systems combined with a resistor chosen to match the characteristic impedance of the cable materials with which the connector is commonly used. They are used in high-frequency applications to mitigate the discontinuity caused by the physical end of a cable, which may otherwise cause reflections of the signals being transmitted through the cable and subsequent corruption of the information it represents.
Coaxial Connectors (RF)
Products in the coaxial connector family are interconnect devices used with cable materials consisting of a central conductor surrounded by insulation material and an outer conductor of circular cross section, designed to maintain a consistent characteristic impedance over the length of the material in order to serve as a suitable transmission line for high frequency signals.
Contacts - Leadframe
Leadframe terminals connect a semiconductor's thin metal leadframe wiring to the large-scale circuitry on electrical devices and circuit boards. Leadframes and leadframe terminals are used in almost all semiconductor packages. Terminals are chosen by terminal pitch, frame width and thickness, clip style and type, and dimensional considerations such as pin length, clip length, and board thickness.
Contacts - Multi Purpose
Products in the multipurpose contact family are interconnect system components which are typically applied to a conductor by means of a crimp connection, which can be used with multiple styles of corresponding housings. This allows the use of the same contact part number and application equipment to assemble similar connectors which are resistant to incorrect mating.
Contacts, Spring Loaded (Pogo Pins), and Pressure
Spring-loaded contacts, also known as "pogo pins" in reference to the toy they resemble, are commonly used to establish electrical contact between two objects whose relative mechanical position cannot be well-controlled, or a connector system tolerant of frequent mating/unmating cycles is desirable. Charging cradles for cordless handheld devices such as bar code scanners and mobile radios are a common example. Contact pads used to create a durable, corrosion-resistant surface for spring-loaded contacts to bear against are also included within this product family.
D-Shaped Connectors - Centronics
Products in this family are interconnect devices typically used for wire-to-board connections in data applications. Combining a D-shaped shroud similar to that found on D-subminiature connectors with an inner contact set reminiscent of a card edge interconnect scheme, this connector style was commonly used for connecting printers and similar peripheral devices to computers during the late 20th century.
D-subminiature connectors are named for the D-shaped shroud present at their mating end and the relatively high interconnect density offered at the time of their introduction. Products in this family, which are described as "connectors", incorporate the electrical contacts and the insulation system holding them in position as an integral unit. They are commonly used for board mount applications, although they can also be used for solder terminated cable mount.
D-Sub, D-Shaped Connectors - Accessories - Jackscrews
Jack Screws or Screw Lock assemblies solidify the connection between D-Sub connectors by physically screwing the male and female connectors together. It is important to note that some jackscrews come with hardware included, while others require additional hardware that is not included.
D-Sub, D-Shaped Connectors - Accessories
Products within this family are designed for use with standard D-style and related connectors, and serve ancillary functions such as sealing of a connector assembly, mechanical fixation, avoidance of accidental un-mating, protection of unmated connectors, cable strain relief, keying of connectors to discourage improper connections, facilitating system diagnostics, and others.
D-Sub, D-Shaped Connectors - Adapters
D-Sub/D-Shaped Connector adapters are used to convert from one style D-Sub/D-Shaped connector to another D-Sub/D-Shaped connector in both free hanging or panel mount versions. Pin counts range from 9 to 104, in both standard and high density versions.
D-Sub, D-Shaped Connectors - Backshells, Hoods
Products in this family are used for the construction or repair of D-subminiature (D-Sub) cables, so named because of the D-shaped shroud surrounding their mating region and the relatively high interconnect density they offered at the time of their introduction. These products serve to enclose the junction between the conductors in a cable and the contacts in the connector assembly, providing cable strain relief and facilities for mechanical fixation.
D-Sub, D-Shaped Connectors - Contacts
D-Sub, D-Shaped Connector Contacts are male or female terminals for coaxial, pneumatic, power, signal, or voltage applications that are used with connectors that have a shield or molded base that is in the form of a "D". The typical wire gauges range from 2 to 36 AWG, and cover a broad range of coaxial cables such as RG174, RG178, RG179, RG180, RG187, RG188, RG196, RG316, RF58, RG141, and RG404.
D-Sub, D-Shaped Connectors - Housings
Products in this family are components of D-subminiature style connectors, into which electrical contacts that have been applied to discrete wires can be inserted. So-named in reference to the shape of their mating end and their relatively high interconnect density at the time of introduction, an additional component known as a backshell is needed to form a connector assembly. Note that similar products assembled by means of soldering discrete wires in place are available though grouped separately, alongside similar items intended for mounting directly to a printed circuit board.
D-Sub, D-Shaped Connectors - Terminators
Products in this family are special use connectors based on the D-subminiature pattern, which are so named because of the D-shaped outline the mating portions of the connector and the relatively high interconnect density they offered at the time of the of their introduction. They differ from standard connectors of this style by incorporation of one or more resistors or other circuitry between selected connector contacts, serving to reduce signal reflections in high-speed communication applications.
