They appear to be some form of pins used in clincher connectors

I know this is not the answer you're looking for, but I'd just splice the wire back together unless you have a reason to think the connector itself was part of the problem. Someone here may be able to tell you the general name of the connector, or maybe the exact style or even a part number, but you could spend a long time finding one, and possibly for more ...

Something may be adding to the confusion. There are indeed 2 different types of 5-pin DIN connector. In this image they are called 5-way 180º and 5-way 240º, and yes, there is a difference in angle between them. 5-way 180º: centerlines of the holes are across a 180º arc 5-way 240º: centerlines of the holes are across a 240º arc The one you need for MIDI ...

While one might expect that the socket's contacts would be a round metal receptacle, there is another design that looks like a fork. The two extensions of the fork make contact with the plug's pins by contacting the pin on either side. This fork-contact has a flat profile, and during manufacture, it is inserted into the slot that you see as a "line". The ...

If you look inside the socket you will see that the contact is a fork with two prongs. They are angled to prevent interfering with each other. The important point is that the circular pin entry points are in the required pattern, 3 o'clock, half-past four, 6, half-past seven and nine o'clock.

MIDI uses 5 pin 180 degree connector. It seems that the datasheet you linked matches this specification, 45 degrees between pins. The datasheet has only one 5-pin connector and it does match up.

The most common necessary part and that is the hot-insertion type connector which connects ground first. At the same time you must provide ESD transient protection. The requirements to avoid SCR-latchup are that the signal lines must never go outside the power rails by more than 0.2V. I doubt there will be any diode solution for this as transient ...

You can stack an undefined number of PCB like this one on top of each other, with traversing components: Use M3 hexagonal standoffs to keep the stack of PCB solidly together and at regular intervals. While nylon standoffs maintain isolation, you can use metallic standoffs to transmit power. Use heat shrink tubes to protect them against accidental short ...

You can import the footprint into freecad using stepup and then check the dimensions in a powerful CAD environment (if you have access to freecad 0.17 then drawing dimensions workbench otherwise techdraw or export to dxf and then use librecad.)

A closeup of the face of the cable, and dimensions of the port, would help. As would some info on the device it is plugging into. But I would guess it’s some sort of Amphenol connector. Maybe something similar to this: C01630G00680012. There are hundreds of such interconnects, so to get good results you’ll need to provide good information.

I'll try to answer your questions: How to interpret the dimensions provided on the drawing? I believe you have correctly identified the x-y coordinates of each hole. The hole diameter of 62.5 mils is also correctly identified. As far as I can tell, you have transferred the useful information from the mechanical drawing for an electrical connection. You ...

This looks like TE part 54489-5 pitch is .312" Contacts 53892-2 are seperate from the housing.

Stereo jack connectors are often used in guitar/bass pedals to "enable" the pedal when a mono jack cable is connected, let me explain it with an image: The Sleeve is in contact with the ground part of the jack cable The Tip is in contact with the "tip" part of the jack, carrying the signal of the instrument The Ring is the extra tap necessary to "enable" ...

To analyze what happens when you connect two powered circuit, without any special connector, try to imagine that you connect each wire individually in every possible order. Usually the worst case scenario is when you connect GND last. For example: assume that you connect the 24V first and then the 3.3V and try to imagine which path the currect would flow. ...

The single most-important feature that your connector must have is that the ground pin makes connection first and breaks last. Sketch up your circuit and connectors and observe what happens if both of your power supply connections are made but the ground connection is open. There is a very good chance that both your low-voltage rail AND the signal ...

Often called an SME tonearm headshell connector 4-pin. The mating part is either a replacement SME 3009 or 3012 tonearm or a female SME tonearm 4-pin socket. Here are a few examples of available parts: http://www.audiosilente.com/spare-parts-for-sme-new-sme-3009-connector-with-gold-plated-pins.html https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-5pcs-lot-Technics-tonearm-...

Now the probe vendor says that SMA cables/connectors damage the K-connector on rf-Probe. Probes are very fragile and could be damaged by a very small error in operating them. They should practically be treated as consumables, and if you're using them you should budget replacing them occasionally. So what I'd do is buy a set of probes with SMA connectors, ...

The "cleanest" way is a tin soldered heat-shrink sleeved connection. Other ways must guarantee a gas-tight connection between the wires contact surfaces, which can corrode over time. I have not tried these IDC crimps, but with the plastic threaded lock nut to seal the IDC crimp under pressure, I would support use of these but never any other crimp ...

Putting fuses in parallel is OK if they are well matched and the holders have good contact. If not the worst that can happen is fuses blowing at lower than expected current. In your circuit the 15A fuse doesn't add much because the three 5A fuses already can't pass more than 15A. If one of the paths (pin+fuse+holder) has significantly higher resistance it ...

Are such cables able to be cut and connected (soldered) to the connectors pictured, and used without effect on their performance. Can't tell you, because we don't have a spec sheet to these connectors. USB2 is a (pseudo)differential bidirectional bus, and it relies on the cables being of defined impedance. If your connectors are designed to keep that ...

Here is the official Mini Fit (Jr) for PCI Express specification by Molex. https://www.molex.com/pdm_docs/ps/PS-45558-001-001.pdf All part numbers officially compatible are listed in section 2.1.

Justme's answer is sufficient: There's pins that logically can't be split passively. And no, they are not optional; especially working E-DDC is a mandatory requirement for HDMI. Other than that: The signal lines aren't just "cables", they carry a very high-speed signal over impedance-controlled lines (typically, twisted pairs). If you built a splitter, ...

Yes, it is possible to make a wideband power splitter with matched input and output impedances, but the signal level is reduced by half, which greatly limits the length of cable that you'll be able to drive. Also, the physical layout is very critical for flat frequency response. There's more information here, but the basic idea is this: simulate this ...

No, it is not possible to split passively. There are other pins like hotplug and display data channel that make it a point to point connection only.

You can get "Dupont" style crimp connector housings and make up whatever kind of cable/harness you need. Male-male, male-female, a mix of the two, etc. Here's a picture of that kind of housing in some of the housings available. https://www.amazon.com/QLOUNI-Housing-Connector-Adaptor-Assortment/dp/B0774NMT1S?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_1 If you go to Pololu.com and ...

Take a look at Wurth Part 690207100672 I am not 100% sure this is it without exact measurments, however you are certainly looking for a wire to board connector like that. If that is not the one you can verify pitch of cable and pitch on board and there is one that should work.

It almost seems like something that would take a polarized C7 in a non polarized fashion. If you have this I would say it is likely a custom / non-standard connector.

Staggering the holes in the footprint slightly, as shown in this Sparkfun tutorial, allows an ordinary header with 0.025" square pins to make reasonably reliable contact without solder. If the PCB is already made, it may be possible to bend the pins of a header slightly, staggering them in a complementary way in order to get the same overall effect.
