Plated Through Hole Contact

In stacking microminiature modules, it is often necessary to connect the plated through hole of one module with that of an adjacent module.

To provide such a connection, a pair of flat moldings 10 have V-shaped pockets 11 that end in rectangular holes, 12. With moldings 10 clamped face to face, diamond shaped cavities are formed to hold a spring contact 14 formed with V-shaped arms 14A and 14B. These are bent from and are free to flex independently with relation to the straight cross bar 15.

With the molding and associated contacts positioned between two modules or printed circuits 16, the rounded ends of contacts 14 engage the edges of plated through holes 17 to form a connection between them.
