Abstract (en)

An electronic device, systems and methods are described for detecting whether there has been a proper cable connection when a plug is inserted into a socket. A pressure sensor configured to measure air pressure within the socket generates one or more pressure signals as a function of the air pressure, and a processor determines whether a proper cable connection has been made (whether the plug has been fully inserted into the socket) as a function of the pressure signals.
