This episode of Tech Specs is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

AVX IDC Press-Fit Connector

Specifically developed for critical automotive and transportation systems, the new, off-the-shelf 53-8702 series wire-to-board connector system from AVX combines dual, cold-welded terminations for extreme applications.

Press-Fit pin technology has been used for over 15 years in multiple automotive systems, including safety, engine management, ADAS, sensors, and more. This new connector also integrates gas-tight IDC technology for terminating solid and stranded wires reliability to a PCB in harsh applications.

These low pin count connectors can replace costly hand-soldered wire-to-board connections. The connectors use fatigue-resistant phosphor bronze contact material in both single and dual row configurations with up to 8 positions to support cost-sensitive in-cabin electronics and harsh exterior electrical connections.

Variants are available for discrete 18 to 24 AWG wires, with a current rating up to 10A. AVX 53-8702 series connectors have a -40°C to +125°C operating temperature range.
