As a longtime franchise distributor of State of the Art, New Yorker Electronics supplies its complete line of Military Grade and Standard Grade Chip Resistors, Zero Ohm Jumpers & Resistors, Military Jumpers, Untrimmed Resistors, Space Level Resistors, Silicon Resistors, Resistor Networks, Fixed Chip and Coplanar Attenuators, and other High Power and High Frequency Resistors.
Unlike traditional BTB pin jumpers--which are made to mate with traditional connectors and are thus closed on the back end, limiting the depth to which a pin can travel and restricting the amount of BTB or module-to-module mating tolerance that the jumper can absorb--the new 10-9296 Series BTB pin jumper and contact combination absorbs the maximum amount of component and assembly tolerances during the mating process, effectively eliminating the PCB and housing tolerance stack-up issues common to traditional connector systems in linear and coplanar applications.
