Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

A PinComponent describes a pin of an EEComponent. A PinComponent is part of a HousingComponent and is defined by tree aspects.

  1. Its geometric position in the HousingComponent, which is defined by the referencedCavity.
  2. Its physical electrical properties, which are defined by the referenced TerminalSpecification.
  3. Its electrical behaviour, which is defined configuration dependent by its PinComponentBehaviour.
