Abstract

With advancing high technology, an increasing number of electronic devices are being miniaturied. As a result, new mechanical requirements for these devices have been created. One example is a code plug socket which was originally designed for perpendicular insertion with respect to the printed circuit board. However, with recent technology, parallel insertion with respect to the circuit board is required.

LEADLESS SOCKET

by Richard Gordecki and Joe Benty

   With advancing high technology, an increasing number of electronic devices are being miniaturied. As a result, new mechanical requirements for these devices have been created. One example is a code plug socket which was originally designed for perpendicular insertion with respect to the printed circuit board. However, with recent technology, parallel insertion with respect to the circuit board is required.

This invention describes how to use a socket intended for insertion perpendicular to the printed circuit board for insertion parallel to the printed circuit board.

   Figure 1 shows the socket which is pressed into the plastic header 2. The header 2 provides accurate canter to center spacing. The rails on both ends of the header 2 assure that the sockets 1 mounted in the header 2 are tangent to the printed circuit board 3 and that they meet the pads on the printed circuit board. The reflow process may be utilized to solder the sockets 1 to the printed circuit board 3.
