Abstract

This device is a precision machined aluminum fabrication that is bonded to a printed circuit board. Accurate orientation is provided by using the same locating system as used in the manufacture of the printed circuit boards. Close tolerances are maintained on thickness and openings machined into the stiffener to assure the successful attachment of the logic modules, I/O cable cards and associated hardware.
