Learn More about Connector Mating Cycles

The number of times a connector can connect and disconnect with its counterpart while meeting all its specifications is termed as “mating cycles”. The mating cycle of a connector helps to estimate the life span of a connector in a particular application.

For instance, while the mating cycle for a USB connector will be in thousands, a FFC / FPC connector will withstand only tens of cycles. This is because a USB connector is regularly connected and disconnected.
