Harwin has unveiled a new technical paper addressing the implementation of sturdy board-to-board interconnects for high-performance data and power connectivity, while tackling the challenges posed by high-speed automated manufacturing processes, which can sometimes affect quality and long-term reliability.

The 'Floating Board-to-Board Connectors' whitepaper is now accessible for free download on the Harwin website. Aimed at engineers dealing with multiple, high-density, small form-factor board-to-board connections between PCBs, the paper delves into issues related to the alignment of these connectors in modern 'pick-and-place' systems, and the potential consequences of misalignment during manufacturing and operational phases.

Introducing the concept of 'floating' board-to-board connectors, the paper explores connectors employing an innovative spring-like suspension mechanism designed to absorb misalignments and minor movements in various axes. Engineers will learn how such connectors mitigate misalignment risks during manufacturing, supporting high-speed PCB production, and enhancing the resilience of interconnects against shock and vibration in real-world deployments.

The document also discusses applications best suited for floating connectors, followed by a detailed examination of the technical specifications and capabilities of the latest floating connector technologies.

The 'Floating Board-to-Board Connectors' whitepaper can be downloaded free of charge here.
