Cassette for Circuit Card

Fig. 1 is an exploded view of a cassette for a circuit card 1 g consisting of two parts, a front part 2 and a rear part 3. Both cassette parts 2 and 3 have snap joints fitting into each other, so that they can be linked by pressing them together.

The rear part 3 has a protrusion 4 engaging a recess 5 in circuit card 1 to prevent a lateral shifting of circuit card 1 in cassette 2, 3. The lateral contact tags protrude laterally from cassette 2, 3 and are surrounded by flanges 11, 12. Cassette 2, 3 is provided at the top and bottom with cooling air vents.

Fig. 2 shows a housing 6 for several cassettes 2, 3 and how a cassette 2, 3 is inserted into board housing 6. The side boards of housing 6 are provided with connector boards 7, 8 with ZIF (zero insertion force) contacts. Connector plugs 10 for connection to the outside are arranged on the outer wall of connector boards 7, 8. For uniquely inserting and polarizing cassettes 2, 3, their bottom side may be provided with pins fitting grooves in housing 6.
