PCB press-fit pins.

Six new press-fit pins are designed for applications where mechanical strength and/or power delivery are essential. These new PCB pins feature multifaceted (polygon) geometries and are suitable for solderless PCB termination or for direct soldering to the board.

When these pins are pressed into a plated through-hole, the points (the major or circumscribed diameter) of the polygon are set or imbedded in the hole while the flat sides of the feature (minor or inscribed diameter) provide relief, allowing the remainder of the plated through-hole barrel to remain intact. The result is that internal board layers are not disconnected when the pin is pressed in. With a properly specified hole size, the polygon-shaped press-fit feature will allow the pin to be secured in the hole while maintaining continuity throughout all the layers ofthe PCB.
