Double Mini-PCI socket

    When system (PC, notebook PC etc) provide multiple card slot, normal implementation is to provide each card slot on planar (or interposer). In this case, placement area,
component pad and also wiring will be increase.

If additional card can be stacked on primaly card slot and share common signal, system can reduce placement area, component pad and wiring pattern.

This invention is stacking addtional card slot for multiple card slot solution. Follwoing solution is for mini-PCI option, Left side chart is normal single slot and right side chart is this invention. System can provide dual mini-PCI slot with this solution without increasing placement area, component pad and wiring If system implement dual mini-PCI without this invention, system provide one more placement area, addtional component pad and all addtional wiring for 2nd mini-PCI.
