Printed Circuit Card Connector

Printed circuit cards are mounted perpendicular to one another and electrically connected together by circular springs.

Molding 1 is secured to one side of printed circuit board 2. It has a slot 3 to receive pluggable printed circuit board 4. Corresponding intersecting land areas on the two printed circuit boards are connected by circular or hoop-shaped contacts 5. The latter are retained within molding 1 on rods 6 and 7 to provide two rows of contacts at either side of board 4.

Hoops 5 are threaded on the rods loosely. The molding bears on the springs to establish good electrical connection with the land areas. Molding has holes to receive terminal pins or solder cups 8. These bear on the deflected hoops to provide a third point of connection with each spring.
