Abstract

This method is for connecting coaxial cable to circuitry and the ground plane of circuit board 10. The latter is provided with pin 12 having head 14 in electrical contact with ground plane 15. The opposite end 16 of pin 10 extends above the surface of board 10. Pin 12 is insulated from board 10 by plastic insulator 18 which extends above circuitry 20 which terminates in solder bucket 22. The cable is wrapped about the protruding portion 16 of pin 12. Copper shield 24 is in direct contact with 12 and the exposed center wire 26 is pushed tightly into solder bucket 22. Insulation 28 extends well beyond shield 24. The solder in bucket 22 is reflowed to assure a satisfactory connection. Shield 24 is also soldered to portion 16 of pin 12.
