Introduction and application of Pin header & Female Header connector

There are various connectors such as DB connector, terminal block, and pin header female header. Our main connectors are the pin header and the female header. Would you like to know more about them? Today let’s focus on the basic knowledge of the pin header and female header. What are the applications, functions, and specifications of the pin header and female connector?

Introduction and application:

Both pin header and female header are a kind of electrical connectors, which are male connectors and female connectors. They are widely used in PCB in various electronics, electrical appliances, and instrumentation, especially in the PCB of integrated circuits. One of the most important components of the pin header and female header connector is the metal part. Due to the good performance in electrical conductivity and fair cost, copper is mostly used as the main material of wire and cable. However, the mechanical strength and heat resistance of pure copper connectors cannot reach the standard of the electronic connector industry. So it is necessary to add some alloy elements, such as gold plating, sn plating to strengthen it.


Pin header and female header act as a bridge between the blocked or unconnected PCBs, used to transmit electrical current and signal.
