Abstract

An extruded aluminum assembly, shown in the drawing, forms a chassis on which discrete components and printed circuit (PC) boards may be efficiently mounted, for instance, the illustrated capacitor and PC board. The extruded assembly is secured to a base chassis structure by means of screws which attach from the underside of the base structure to extruded/ threaded channels in the extruded part. The PC board may attach to the extruded assembly by means of screws which are variably positioned in extruded longitudinal channels in the extruded member. Extruded holes may also be provided for securing the indicated capacitor and diode to the extruded chassis member.
