Card Edge Connectors - Edgeboard Connectors
Card edge or edgeboard connectors are a style of connector system in which (typically) a pattern of exposed copper regions at the periphery of a printed circuit board constitutes one-half of a mating connector pair. A common use case being the connection of accessory cards such as graphics accelerators to computer motherboards in desktop PC applications, they offer a relatively low-cost, high density interconnect option for applications where durability is not a primary concern.
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, 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.
