To meet customer demands, programmable elec- tronic devices such as pagers, two way radios, cellu- lar telephones, etc., are becoming smaller and more durable. These products require access to the cir- cuitry for testing and programming purposes. The present systems used to access the circuitry enables intrusion of foreign materials such as dust or mois- ture. Intrusion of foreign materials can cause any- thing from aesthetic or cosmetic issues to catastrophic electrical failure. A desired situation would be the ability to access circuitry and maintain a barrier from intrusion of foreign materials without complicating the assembly ofthe product.
