Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.
This article discusses a connector for interconnecting a chip carrier type device to a flexible or rigid substrate via a solderless, removable connector, while maintaining an extremely low profile.
The present industry state of the art for producing a removable semiconductor device utilizes a 'Dual lnline Package' which requires a .200 inch profile above the substrate, and requires that it be mounted on a rigid P.C. Board. The improved connector of Figure 1 provides for a profile of no higher than the chip carrier device itself which is typically ,075 inch. It can be mounted to printed circuit boards of various thickness or thin flex circuits.
The structure indicated in Figure 1 consists of a bottom brazed flat pack (1) with the leads cut a predetermined short length on all 4 sides. The flat pack is inserted into a window in the center of a
plastic molded frame (2), from the side with recesses for containing four extruded silicon rods (3). Into the frame are affixed four captive screws (4) which protrude through the substrate (5) and tighten Into a metal "nut" back up plate (6). The back up plate is insulated from the circuit runners of the substrate by a plastic film (7). When the structure is assembled, the silicone rods compress to a predetermined minimum contact for...
