What is an Interconnect?

An interconnect is an optical or electrical cable or connection that connects two or more devices. An interconnect joins electric conductors electrically and mechanically to other conductors as well as to the terminals of electrical devices. Interconnects are passive electrical components containing two terminals which store energy in their magnetic field. For example, a cable connecting a monitor or a hard drive to a computer is an interconnect, and a PC contains several interconnects.

Types of Interconnects

There are several different kinds of interconnects at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including Style/Orientation, Number of Positions, Termination, Mating Type, Material, Size, Wire Gauge, Category and Packaging Type. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.

Interconnects from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a wide range of interconnects from several manufacturers. Once you decide if you need interconnects for Audio/Video & Test, Cable Assemblies, Circular Connectors, Crimp Terminals, D-Subs, Data & Telecom Connectors, IC Sockets, PCB Connectors, Rectangular Plastic & Industrial Connectors, RF Connectors, Solar Combiners, Solar Connectors, Terminal Blocks & Barrier Strips, USB to TTL/ RS232/RS422/RS485 Cables, Tools, Contacts or Accessories, you will be able to choose from their technical attributes and your search results will be narrowed to match your specific interconnect application needs.

We deal with several manufacturers such as Adam Tech, ASSMANN WSW Components, EDAC, Harting, Hirose Electric, JST, Mill-Max, TE Connectivity, WAGO, Weco and Wieland Electric, among others. You can easily refine your interconnect product search results by clicking your preferred interconnect brand from the list of manufacturers below.

Applications for Interconnects:

There are many applications that use interconnects. Cable assemblies are part of HVAC equipment and RF, serial, Ethernet and high-speed connectivity applications. RF connectors are used in cellular phones, GPS devices and wireless communications. IC sockets are used in applications where integrated circuit devices have short lead pins. D-sub connectors are used for video connections and in RS-232 serial communications. Data & telecom connectors can be found in hubs, routers, digital cameras, MP3 players and PDAs. Crimp terminals allow the wires to be easily terminated to quick-disconnect / fast-on / spade-foot type terminals, screw terminals and wire splices.

Choosing the Right Interconnect:

With the parametric search, when looking for the right interconnects, you can filter the results by category. We carry the following categories of interconnects:

  • Audio/Video & Test
  • Cable Assemblies
  • Circular
  • Crimp Terminals
  • D-Subs
  • Data & Telecom
  • IC Sockets
  • PCB
  • Rectangular Plastic & Industrial
  • RF Connectors
  • Solar Combiners
  • Solar Connectors
  • Terminal Blocks & Barrier Strips
  • Tools, Contacts & Accessories
  • USB to TTL/ RS232/RS422/RS485 Cables

Once you choose the interconnect category, you can narrow them down by various attributes: by Number of Positions, Style/Orientation, Termination, Mating Type and Material, to name a few. You will be able to find the right Cable Assemblies, Audio/Video & Test connectors, Crimp Terminals, D-Subs, Data & Telecom Connectors, Circular Connectors, IC Sockets, PCB Connectors, Rectangular Plastic & Industrial Connectors, Solar Combiners, Solar Connectors, RF Connectors, Terminal Blocks & Barrier Strips, USB to TTL/ RS232/RS422/RS485 Cables, Tools, Contacts & Accessories by using these filters.

Interconnects in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of interconnects you require is less than a full reel, we offer to our customers several of our interconnects in tray, tube or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

Future Electronics also offers its clients a unique bonded inventory program designed to eliminate potential problems that may arise from an unpredictable supply of products that could contain raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you can avoid possible shortages.
