Versatile PCB terminal pins
News Release from:
Vero Technologies Ltd
09 August 2010
Vero Technologies' PCB terminal pin family all feature either a knurled or a 4-zone barbed pressfit design to ensure good electrical continuity in PTH boards and to resist rotation or withdrawal during use. Terminal pins are predominantly used during original prototyping during development or for breadboarding modifications, extensions or adaptations in existing board layouts. Typically hand assembled into the PCB, they are an efficient low cost way of providing a selection of physical interconnect interfaces with single-sided, double-sided or multilayer PCBs. Available designs include ones to which leaded components can be soldered, mini wire-wrap sockets, headers and test points, all in single and double sided options. Also available are wire wrap pins with a 0.86 mm diagonal that are suitable for conventional standard and modified wrap techniques.
The Vero Technologies range are suitable for nominal 1.02, 1.32 or 1.45mm hole diameters and includes versions suitable for use with any PCB as well as designs specifically optimised for use with the company’s own Veroboard prototyping boards. All versions are available from stock at http://www.verodirect.com/products.asp?category=Prototyping+Components&subcategory=Prototyping+Pins.
