SWaP-C: How to Maximize PCB Space With Connector Selection


Connectors are often the last components considered during a high-reliability PCB design, yet they account for a considerable amount of board space and a large percentage of the overall bill-of-material value. When specified in the right way, the resulting savings in PCB space can be significant.

This 30-minute Webinar investigates the common mistakes made during connector selection and how they can be avoided. It also provides practical tips on selecting the right connector for the job, specifying with size, weight, power, and cost in mind. Examples of common connector pitfalls are also shown.

Topics include:

  • Common connector selection mistakes and their implications
  • Advantages of connector selection when it’s done correctly
  • Key considerations
  • A connector specifier’s checklist

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
