Abstract

As consumer electronic products continue to reduce in size, available real estate on printed circuit boards (PCBs) becomes increasingly valuable. Accompanying this trend is the ever-present pressure to reduce manufacturing cycle time and increase associate safety within a firm. To combat these issues, a new contact design and singulation method- ology was derived and is detailed in this article.
