This design of interconnects require reliable robot placeable contacts which "se pc board area efficiently. As this contact design is purely surface mountable, it eliminates the need for it to go through the printed cir- cuit board. Without the need of through holes, the pcb area savings is particularly significant on multi-layer boards. Surface mounting then enables robot placement of the contacts to be easily achieved. The use of a coni- cal spring achieves a low-profile design as the spring could deflect down to its spring diameter dimension.
