This paper considers the results of using tin or T/A platings as a substitute for gold in card-edge connectors.Measurements have been made on mated systems before and after various environmental tests. It has been shown that gold-gold contacts still provide the best reliability even if some of the gold platings have become worn through due to constant withdrawal and insertion.
