What is a D-Sub Connector?

D-sub connectors contain two or more parallel rows of contacts surrounded by a characteristic D-shaped metal shell. The shell provides mechanical support and ensures the correct orientation.  It may also screen against electromagnetic interference (EMI).  Several methods are used to connect the system circuitry to the contacts in D-sub connectors.  For instance, methods include: crimp, solder cup, PCB solder, PCB press-fit and wire wrap connections. Many times locking systems are implemented to ensure the connectors remain in a mated state despite shock and vibration conditions.
