Abstract

A connector permits one printed circuit card to be stacked on another to allow the use of feed-through technology and to provide for strain relief. The connector 21 is generally rectangular in shape and includes a flat surface 21a to facili stacking. The lower portion of member 21 has a tab 21b which extends through an opening 22a in a printed circuit board 22 to lock connector 21 to board 22.

Molded Stackable Surface Mounted Connector

A connector permits one printed circuit card to be stacked on another to allow the use of feed-through technology and to provide for strain relief. The connector 21 is generally rectangular in shape and includes a flat surface 21a to facili stacking. The lower portion of member 21 has a tab 21b which extends through an opening 22a in a printed circuit board 22 to lock connector 21 to board 22.

Connector 21 has a side drain opening 21c and a bottom drain opening (not shown) for release of fluids, such as cleaning solvents, used in manufacture. Connector 21 has standoff lower leg portion 21d to prevent electrical tabs 24 from crushing or extruding solder paste used to make electrical connections to the printed circuit card leads 26.
