Module With Multilength Pins

Many electronic packages include substrates which have a plurality of pins extending therefrom. These pins are adapted to be inserted into connectors.

It has been found that if the pins are made different lengths, some of the pins will engage their associated connectors before other pins do, thereby reducing the amount of insertion force required to insert the module pins into the associated connectors.

It has also been found that by making the ends of the pins pointed rather than flat, the module can be inserted into connectors more easily.
