Abstract

The metalized polymer composite connector is a single-piece molded device consisting of spring beams that have been plated with conductive metals to produce an electrical connector. Close tolerance control and batch processing for manufacture and assembly enable this molded, photo-etch connector device to meet high density and low cost.
