Coaxial Lug Terminator

       Disclosed is a design for termination of a coaxial cable
to a printed circuit (PC) board to implement engineering changes
(ECs), repairs and overflows.

      Coaxial cable 1 with pre-stripped signal and ground drain wires
2 and 3, respectively, are secured within a molded plastic lug
housing 4.  Affixed to the lug housing are metallic tangs 5 that are
crimped and soldered to the coaxial wires 2, 3.  The extensions 6 of
the tangs 5 are subsequently joined to solder-coated surface pads 7
of the PC board 8 to complete the cable interconnection.

      The lug terminator provides a means to pre-prepping cables for
board attachment, establishes a signal-to-ground center distance for
the wires at the board level, and minimizes mechanical stress on the
conductors.  One or more coaxial cables can be integrated at a single
lug terminator to provide stitch-type cabling.
