French term or phrase: la broche n° 1???
Les spécifications de la jonction offrent une description :
Le connecteur, sa forme, mâle ou femelle, le nombre de broches, comment repérer la broche n° 1
How would la broche n° 1 be translated. Is there a specific term?

English translation:pin No. 1
Explanation:
The phrase "pin No. x" is the standard way of referring to the ends of the wires in multi-wire connectors.

Your phrase, in full: "The connector, its type (male or female), the number of pins, and the identification of pin No. 1...."

An alternative for the last part would be "...and an indication of how pin No. 1 is identified..."

Some of the connectors used most often in the computer and electronics industry, for instance, are 9-pin, 15-pin, 25-pin, and 50-pin connectors. The wires that end at the various pins carry different specific signals, so it's important to know which pin is pin No. 1 (because once you know that, you can easily determine what the other pins and their functions are).

Hope this helps, HC
