In some connectors for a ribbon cable, the electrical connection between the cable and the connector parts is made through a printed circuit board. The insulation is stripped from the ends of the cable and the exposed wires are soldered to conductive pads on the printed circuit board. Contact is made against the flat surfaces of the printed conductors.
