DB15 connectors are most commonly known as VGA d-subs and provide data flow to monitors, but it can also be used in many other applications; particularly in industrial and medical segments. The D-shaped shell provides automatic polarization as it only fits one way. EDAC offers a slim VGA with vertical pins but side cable entry that saves up to 70% board space!

What is a db15 connector?
The DB15 connector is an analog socket, with 15 pins, from the D-Subminiatures (D-Sub) connector family. The prefix “D” represents the D-shape of the connector shell. The DB15 connector is mainly used in serial and parallel ports, allowing asynchronous data transmission according to the RS-232 standard (RS-232C).
DB15 Engineering Options
There are three types of cable end DB15 D-sub connectors. They are differentiated by the method used to attach the wires to the contacts: soldering, insulation displacement or crimping.
1. DB15 DSUB connector with SOLDER CONTACTS
The solder contacts have a cavity into which the stripped and tinned wire is inserted and then soldered.
2. DB-15 DSUB Connector with INSULATION DISPLACEMENT CONTACTS (idc or i.d.c)
The insulation displacement contacts (I.D.C.) are designed for automated assembly. A flat cable is pressed against the contacts, the rear of which is fork-shaped, which then pierce the insulation of all the wires simultaneously.
3. DB15 DSUB connector with CRIMPED CONTACTSThe crimp contacts are wired by inserting a stripped end of wire into a cavity at the back of the contact. The cavity is then crimped using a crimping tool. The contact is then inserted into the connector. Pins can be removed later with a tool inserted into the back of the connector. This "rear disconnect" is useful when the pins on the device are damaged.
Db15 DSUB CONNECTOR TERMINATION STYLES - STRAIGHT AND RIGHT-ANGLE
There are also two types of PCB mounted connectors, straight or right-angle termination styles. This type of connector has built-in solder tails for easy mounting on a PCB.

DB15 D-SUB connector BACKSHELLS
D-Sub connector backshells enclose the junction between the conductors in a cable and the contacts in the connector assembly. These are available in plastic for standard applications, or metal for industrial applications.
