I have two connectors both gold plated, because of changes I have to consider moving one of these to a tin connector. Now I need to find out what the worst case scenario would be from a design with gold mated with tin. What are the consequences of using a tin plated contact with a gold plated contact?
I can think of a few reasons not to (are there more?):
- reduction of conductivity
Has anyone ran gold plating with tin plating?
