Method for a connector extender
Disclosed is a method for a connector extender. Benefits include
improved ease of manufacturing.
� � � � � The disclosed method
is a plastic card that enables two connectors to be joined together to function
as one larger connector (see Figure 1). The method maintains the alignment of
the two connectors on the printed wiring board (PWB) through the manufacturing
process. After the connectors are soldered on to the PWB, the card can be
reused or thrown away.
The disclosed method provides advantages, including:
Improved ease of manufacturing due to the reuse of
existing sizes of connectors
Improved cost effectiveness due to high volume pricing
and avoiding the requirement to retool for a larger size connector
