TE Connectivity – Micro-MaTch Miniaturized Connectivity


TE Connectivity’s (TE) miniature Micro-MaTch connector family provides a proven reliable connection. Its unique contact-spring system helps prevent fretting corrosion by absorbing movements between male and female contacts.

The Micro-MaTch contact concept is essentially different from other systems available. By its design, the traditional failure mode in tin-plated connections, fretting corrosion, is prevented. The separation of the two basic functions of the contact system (contact force generation and wire termination), enables the optimization of both functions and leads to relatively simple contact shapes.

The Micro-MaTch contact helps prevent fretting corrosion, the traditional failure mode in tin-plated connections. Relative movements caused by vibrations/thermal expansion can be prevented so that a gas tight connection can make the Micro-MaTch contact spring system fretting corrosion resistant.
