In conventional printed circuit technology, modules are attached to printed circuit boards by either soldering lands on the module lands to lands on the surface of the printed circuit board or pins in the modules are soldered into plated holes on the board. Such holes have to be larger than the component pin, and they therefore take a relatively large amount of internal space in the printed circuit board.
