Can your PCB Spring Contacts Pass the Ultimate Stress Test?
An ITT Cannon White Paper on Hertz Stress
Internal PCB connectors are the “nerve system” in countless applications, from medical handheld devices, smartphones, tablets and wearable devices. Contact reliability is therefore critical to product performance and should be a key area of focus for electronic design engineers.
Fortunately there is a proven and near foolproof way to predict spring contact reliability: Hertz stress.
- Why Hertz stress is the best indicator of contact reliability
- The physics behind Hertzian Stress
- How Hertz stress as a predictive indicator can stop in field spring contact failure
- How ITT Cannon’s Universal Contact has the ideal design specification to maximize Hertz Stress
