Low Insertion Force

(hardware)
(LIF) PGA/SPGA sockets with no handle. The integrated circuit is simply pushed into the socket, and levered out to remove. Most motherboard processor sockets are now ZIF rather than LIF.

While contacts are traditionally either stamped or machined, new manufacturing techniques are allowing contacts to be wirewound together, resulting in a high reliability contact system that exhibits very low insertion force even with a multiple (highs in 50s) pin and socket design.
The symposium will focus on several areas: embedded passives; backplane/connector systems; high-density interconnect substrate enablers; and low inductance, low insertion force connection systems.
Because Quixon terminals feature a flexing beam and standard dimple, they allow for a low insertion force to mate with industry-standard male tabs to 6.
The contact is characterized by a low insertion force, making it compatible with miniature leads subject to bending.
Amphenol Industrial Operations has introduced a field-installable compression lug that offers high ampacity, low insertion force, high cycle durability and reliability.
The Canted-coil[TM] spring contact design offers multi-point conductivity and low insertion force, and compensates for surface irregularities.
Amphenol Industrial Operations has announced its Amphe-Power Series that consists of three families of connectors featuring Radsok[R] technology, a terminal that features a stamped hyperbolic grid providing low insertion force, high Amperage, high reliability and a long cycle life.
The springs also provide very low insertion force and their individual coils and compensate for both misalignment and surface irregularities, making them extremely reliable, low-resistance contact components, Nissim says.
HyperGrip offers the performance of the Hypertac[R] contact technology which provides high mating cycle life, low power consumption, low insertion force, reliability under harsh conditions, and maximum contact performance, according to the company.
Their connector had very low contact resistance as well as very low insertion force without a commensurate connector volume increase.
High reliability connectors need to meet the requirements of the application, which may include high cycle life, low contact resistance, high current ratings, low insertion force, and immunity to shock and vibration.
Versaport[TM] Plus Bladeless Trocars - a bladeless access device that provides enhanced precision and control, low insertion force, a small fascial defect and superior port fixation.
