Abstract

To date, prior four position read switches that have been utilized in pagers have shared two com- mon problems. The first problem is packaging size. The first read switch was a large, (1.346" x 0.460"), switch assembly that had four individual position popple switches. This assembly was presented as a single unit, although there were actually four switches separated by a central and common dividing wall. This divider, shaped like the letter "H:' provided the separation necessary for the individual actua- tion ofeach ofthe different positions.
