Abstract

Connector pin count is a major problem in many test equipment applications. Especially in dynamic and in situ burn-in ovens for high density hybrids with pin counts in excess of 300 per device, the burn-in board connector pin requirements are quite large. This affects the board's dimensions, W (width) and D (depth). The proposed connector method would maintain the same board dimension with a connector double or higher pin count.

High Density Split Land Connector

Connector pin count is a major problem in many test equipment applications. Especially in dynamic and in situ burn-in ovens for high density hybrids with pin counts in excess of 300 per device, the burn-in board connector pin requirements are quite large. This affects the board's dimensions, W (width) and D (depth). The proposed connector method would maintain the same board dimension with a connector double or higher pin count.

The illustrated connector achieves high density with the use of split lands. The split lands on the male connector can be built with surface lands or with plated via holes to internal signal or/and voltages planes. This applies to both sides of the connector.

The female connector differs from the traditional ones with the addition of two or more rows of contacts on one or both sides corresponding to the male connector.
