The service life of the connector is the primary indicator for measuring the reliability of the connector. As the demand for trouble-free performance of electronic products continues to increase, the increased service life in the connector design becomes a design orientation. In addition, increased market competition also requires designers to find suitable materials in non-expensive alloys to reduce connector costs. In many cases, the combined result of these trends has brought the copper alloy's operating characteristics closer to its performance limits. Initial contact force is an important factor in connector design and material properties. Since the elastic deformation is converted into plastic deformation in the contact member, the stress release causes a decrease in the contact force. If the contact force is below a certain critical level, the contact will fail. Therefore, predicting stress relief as a function of time and temperature correlation is naturally a key factor in ensuring connector reliability.
