Abstract

In this interconnection method, a small single-lead coaxial cable is connected to various pins of a circuit board. Ground pins to which the shielded portions of the coax cable are connected have the configuration shown. A cross-section of the ground pin can be triangular, square or star-shaped. The edges of the ground pins are sharp enough to cause penetration through the surrounding insulation and into the shielding of the cable to make good connection when using the usual wire-wrap method. The single lead of the coax cable can be connected to the standard type pin of the circuit board by the usual wire-wrap technique. When the signal through the single lead of the cable is unidirectional, only a single ground pin is required to be connected to the shield of the coax cable.

Wire Wrap Interconnection Method

In this interconnection method, a small single-lead coaxial cable is connected to various pins of a circuit board. Ground pins to which the shielded portions of the coax cable are connected have the configuration shown. A cross- section of the ground pin can be triangular, square or star-shaped. The edges of the ground pins are sharp enough to cause penetration through the surrounding insulation and into the shielding of the cable to make good connection when using the usual wire-wrap method. The single lead of the coax cable can be connected to the standard type pin of the circuit board by the usual wire-wrap technique. When the signal through the single lead of the cable is unidirectional, only a single ground pin is required to be connected to the shield of the coax cable. However, if the signal is bidirectional, it is necessary to connect each end of the shield to an appropriate ground pin. If the cable is small enough in diameter, application of the cable to the circuit board can be made by automatic wire-wrap techniques.
