Abstract

Logic card packages are known wherein logic cards provided with contacts on two or three edges thereof are vertically slidably inserted into a housing having horizontal upper and lower planar boards with zero insertion force (ZIF) connectors engaging the card edge contacts. Normally, a considerable number of flat input/output data cables must be connected to the upper and lower boards, thereby creating accessibility problems, increasing the possibility of incorrect connections and requiring substantial installation and maintenance times.
