Abstract

In tuning high speed circuits, it is presently necessary to pretune the circuit by soldering delay lines into the circuit board. Often the position or value of the delay line must be changed several times before the desired result is attained. This requires unsoldering and resoldering many times. As shown, the socket strip 20 is soldered to the circuit board 16 by way of the socket holes 18. Standoffs 17 on the socket strip prevent solder from seeping into the socket holes. Thus, delay lines 19 may be plugged into and removed from the socket strip at any given time, at any one of the socket strips located on the board, without being soldered. Also, the delay lines may be reused. This technique saves the time necessary to unsolder, reposition and resolder the delay lines.

Soldered Socket Strips

In tuning high speed circuits, it is presently necessary to pretune the circuit by soldering delay lines into the circuit board. Often the position or value of the delay line must be changed several times before the desired result is attained. This requires unsoldering and resoldering many times. As shown, the socket strip 20 is soldered to the circuit board 16 by way of the socket holes 18.

Standoffs 17 on the socket strip prevent solder from seeping into the socket holes. Thus, delay lines 19 may be plugged into and removed from the socket strip at any given time, at any one of the socket strips located on the board, without being soldered. Also, the delay lines may be reused. This technique saves the time necessary to unsolder, reposition and resolder the delay lines. Components other than delay lines; such as crystals, printed circuits, passive and/or active circuit elements, may be utilized in this manner.
