Four design steps to solve the power connector efficiency problem
In order to improve the efficiency of the power system, the current electronic equipment increases the density of the overall power grid when designing the system to function normally. This means higher heat dissipation performance for the power connector. Challenges such as demand and lower power loss. To address these challenges and meet these trends, connector manufacturers must also ensure that their power connectors have a smaller form factor and a more compact design when providing connector products with high linear current densities. Xin Pengbo connector manufacturers suggest that you can refer to the following four design steps;
Step 1: Highly compact
Some connectors now have a pitch of only 3.00 mm and can carry up to 5.0 amps of rated current. The connectors are made of high-temperature LCP material. The technology has been tested for a long time to ensure long-term performance and reliability. It is suitable for data communication. Almost any industry sector, including equipment and heavy industry.
Step 2: Flexibility
In addition to the high-compact design features, power connectors must be extremely flexible in their design. Designed to combine compactness with excellent current density, ultra-narrow design for high voltage and high current applications, up to 34 amps per blade, up to +125° C working temperature.
Step 3: Heat dissipation
In addition, the design of the connector has a direct impact on the internal airflow of the power supply for the most important thermal performance of the power system, but the user cannot rely solely on the connector design to solve the heat dissipation problem. In order to optimize the system design, other factors must also be considered, such as the amount of copper on the PCB, which can help absorb heat from the connector interface.
Step 4: High efficiency
At the same time, in order to meet higher power efficiency requirements, a solution with higher compactness and high current characteristics can be provided. Because higher currents increase power or safety factor, high-performance contact designs enable true hot-swap capability, and low-dropout designs ensure that the heat generated is minimized.
In order to better solve the power connector efficiency problem, when designing the connector product, you can refer to the four design steps described above. Of course, it is only for reference. Specifically, it is necessary to combine various design factors into practice.
