Abstract

This article describes a low-cost cross-point connector interface h which can be used for a minimum configuration without cost penalty. The interface includes a plastic grid with a matrix of square tunnels. Connector strips, which are secured to the printed circuit boards to be connected, have contact-carrying bosses which are inserted into the plastic grid from opposite sides.
