Abstract

In printed circuit technology, tri-lead cables are used to interconnect among signal pins on the wiring side of a circuit board for making circuits complete which cannot be imbedded in the printed circuitry. They are also used to make engineering changes and to upgrade a board in the field. The tri-lead cable consists of one signal conductor and two ground conductors that are encapsulated in a dielectric material to provide the desired impedance. The connector portion consists of a tuning fork contact connected to the signal conductor and another tuning fork contact connected to the two ground conductors.
