Routed Card Connector

      Cost savings and daughter card real-estate savings can be
obtained by using routed pins out of a daughter as described here as
an alternative over standard connectors.

      Shown are pins routed from a daughter card for wave solder
application into PTH(s) or slot(s) on an associated motherboard.  The
recessed routing areas extending above the motherboard surface (in
the assembled state) are used to realize a uniform cross sectional
area throughout the entry into the motherboard PTH(s) or slot(s).

      The outer copper planes of the daughter cards "pins" are
substantially full of copper with procoat relieved providing a good
wave solder surface for connection into the motherboard during and
after the motherboard wave solder process.
