Use smaller connectors

So, do you have any suggestions on where we might obtain these little scamps at a price that doesn't make my lower lip quiver and my eyes water?

The sizing of the connectors is normally such that you can make any size connector by combining 2 and 3 way to get the number of poles that you need (just make sure before you buy.) Priced as singles this will work out as more expensive, but if you make all your connectors out of 2/3 way units, you will go over the 10 or even 25 piece price break. Not a great saving, but a saving nonetheless.

I hate those terminal blocks

I recently did a project development where I foolishly specified those terminal blocks.  90% of our time was taken connecting the IO devices and debugging the wires not having made good connections

The first revison to the board was to get rid of that damned termina blocks and replace them with square pins.  Crimping pins on wires and pushing them into housings saved so much time.

 

Plus, as a bonus: you won't be using ALL those terminals at once (or if you are, god help you).  So why pay for the expensive terminal block instead of cheap pins for the default case?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
