AVX Corp.'s 9276 series discrete wire-to-board 'poke-home' connector simplifies installation and provides a quick and reliable termination in a 2.5mm pitch SMT package.
Suitable for a broad range of industrial and commercial markets, users can simply strip wires and insert them into the connector. AVX provides a small insertion/extraction tool, which enables the wires to be easily replaced up to five times. The connector has been designed using a high spring force beryllium copper upper spring contact that accepts a wide range of wire sizes to meet multiple applications within a single connector.
Accepts 18-24AWG solid or stranded wires
Available in 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 positions
Dual contact design provides two solder points for each wire
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
