Abstract

Contemporary integrated circuit packages consist of multiple chip cards which are interconnected through printed circuit boards. The cards are connected to the boards by means of densely configured connector packages which require characteristics of wiping action, secure retention, zero insertion force, high connection density, dust tightness and amenability to low-cost fabrication.
