Abstract

In order to use the optimum space envelope of an electronic module, it is an advantage to use the vertical plane by stacking PCBs one above each other. In practice this is difficult to do because the tracking to boards not connected directly to the connector becomes long and complex. As a result this approach is normally limited to 2 boards only. In addition if the connectors have 3 or more rows of pins, the tracking near the connector becomes very dense.
