Pin headers and female contacts

Pin headers and female contacts

Plugs with several male contacts next to each other are described as pin headers. They are used to make connections between two circuit boards or between a circuit board and a peripheral component. These plugs are used with female contacts. These are normally linked to PCBs with a soldered contact. Female contacts can be used to create multi-pole, removable connections, e.g. between a motherboard and a plug-in board. Female contacts can be connected to and separated from pin headers several times. Coding prevents pin headers and female contacts being connected incorrectly. Pin headers and female contacts are often used on PC motherboards.
