An Electrical Connector is an electrical device e that connects electrical conductors to form a circuit, or continuous path through the current. An electrical connector is composed of a plug (or plug) and a socket (or jack). These connectors are made for audiovisual data and other power applications. The key function of the electrical connector is to significantly reduce the time and labor required to make, assemble and install electrical equipment, related components, and wiring. The flexibility of design and modification makes it easier to maintain the circuit. They are used extensively in circuits for communications, computers, and consumer electronics.
Electrical connectors are essentially made up of two types of materials: Insulators and Conductors. Conductor materials have important properties such as conductivity, conductivity and mechanical strength. Insulators should have high electrical resistance and high temperatures. They also need to be easy to make for a perfect fit. Because of their high conductivity and malleability, connectors often use copper alloys as electrodes. There are also options for brass, phosphor bronze and beryllium-copper. A base metal electrode is often covered with an inert metal, such as nickel, gold, or tin. A coating material that is good at conducting electricity, corrosion resistance, and mechanical robustness helps reduce the impact of surface adsorbates and passivating oxide layers. These substances limit metal-to–metal contact and increase contact resistance. Copper alloys are good for electrodes but can be difficult to solder and are prone to corrosion. These pitfalls are often avoided by coating copper pins with gold, particularly for high reliability applications and analog signals.

Electrical connectors can be classified based on their termination ends:
- Board-to-board connectors: Used to connect PCBs with no cable
- cable/wire-to-cable/wire connectors : connect two wires, as the name suggests
- Cable/wire-to board connectors: Connects a cable/cable to an PCB
The Effect of Electrical Connector Decay on High-Frequency Signal Transmission
Low communication quality can be caused by electrical connector failures. This could affect the transmission of the signal. Both the dc resistance of the connector and the impedance characteristics caused by corrosion products must be taken into consideration.
The use of electrical connectors is widespread in aircraft, ships, and military aircraft. They supply power to the respective electronic control systems, weapons system, and other systems. The connectors are also used in civilian aircraft and shipping for various purposes such as control systems and motors, communications, lighting, safety, and entertainment. These important factors will likely increase the demand for connectors which should result in an increase in revenue for the electrical connector industry.
