About us

About us

Welcome to the inventor of Powerelements

Würth Elektronik ICS is the specialist in PCB connection technology and the technology leader in press-fit technology. In the early 1980s, we invented power supply terminals for PCB connection, known as Powerelements. This was an important pioneering achievement and set the standards for the high current contacting of printed circuit boards.

In more than 35 years, we have built up enormous know-how in the development and processing of Powerelements and have successfully produced millions of Powerelements for our customers.

Today, with more than 3,000 Powerelements, we offer the largest portfolio on the market, both as standard and customized solutions. We advise and guide our customers on the way to the right solution. Trust us as a competent partner and develop solutions for your demanding projects together with us.
