What is Gold Finger Pcb?
Gold Fingers PCB refers to a terminal that is plated by gold and is a part of a card edge connector. Usually fingers constitute flash gold. This thickness saves them from the bad effects of plugging and unplugging many times. Electroplated Gold serves as a contact for the edge connector where PCBs have to be installed and removed repeatedly. Gold finger provides protection from wear and tear to the edge connector. If gold is electroplated correctly and sufficiently, we can expect them to work efficiently upto 1000 cycles before repairing.
What is PCB Gold Finger Beveling?
PCB gold finger plating is a symmetrical process and involves three steps. Steps are following:
- Nickel Plating
Firstly, edges of the connector receive the layer of Nickel that is 2 to 6 microns in thickness.
- Gold plating
In this step 1 to 2 microns of hard gold is electroplated above the layer of Nickel.
Here, the ends of the connector receive a tapering at a certain angle that varies from 30 to 45 degrees.

Why Choose Gold Fingers PCB?
Following are some reasons why Gold Fingers PCB is preferred to use.
- PCB is connected to the motherboard, but it should be easy to be replaced as well. Gold Fingers make it comfortable with this role upto maximum limit.
- Gold is a metal that has good conductivity and is also resistant to oxidation by almost all the oxidizing agents.
Qualities of Gold Fingers
- They must be hard enough to meet the friction applied during the insertion into the connector.
- They must have a flat surface so that there is no problem during the insertion.
- They are good conductors which makes the strong connection possible.
Gold Finger PCB Types
Gold Finger PCBs are of 3 types:
- Regular Golden Fingers
In this type of golden fingers, PCB has the edge of the plate that has the stack of rectangular pads. These pad have same length and width.
- Long and Short Golden Fingers
This type of golden finger has the plate that has a rectangular pad of multiple length at the corner.
- Segmented Golden Fingers
Here a rectangular pad connects to the edge of the plate but the front section disconnects.
Why Gold Plating is important For Gold Fingers PCBs
The electroplating with gold provides the strength and durability to the contact point. Well, there is a big and solid reason behind the usage of gold. Gold select for this purpose because:
- It is resistant to oxidation
- It provides good conductivity
- It can alloy with other metals to enhance strength
When you scan a document or print an article, motherboard is unable to receive the signals from the other devices until PCB helps to let it so. It means Gold Fingers PCB has proved its significance and resourcefulness to the industry. It has become the part and parcel of the mobile and computer devices of the industry.
