Abstract

Disclosed is an interposer which acts as a zero insertion force (ZIF) connector between a thermal conduction module (TCM) and Clark Board, allowing the contacts to be placed on a .012 X .030 inch matrix. The design allows the connections to be made in an environment that would not normally be conducive with mating flat surfaces.
