An RF interconnect 10 electrically connects a motherboard 11 to an RF pin 12. RF interconnect 10 is constructed from beryllium copper which is gold plated to ensure a good electrical connection. A pin shaped end 13 of RF interconnect 10 provides a pin joint with motherboard 11 which has a plated through hole to accept pin shaped end 13. A lateral support area 14 is incorporated into RF interconnect 10 to prevent any possible tilting thereof during assembly with motherboard 11.
