Integrated Multiple Card Guide
This article describes a card guide which integrates into one part assembly
consisting of connectors, planar board and stiffener.
Typically, on a data processing equipment system the tailgate area consists
of an assorted printed circuit card population, connectors, planar boards, and
stiffeners, as illustrated in Fig. 1. A dual planar configuration is shown where
cards communicate via both edges with two independent planar boards. A
particular system may have a single planar alternative, therefore making
connections by only one side of the printed circuit card. Moreover, the printed
circuit card side which does not make any electrical connection is mounted to
similar hardware as the opposite side. Consequently, in many cases, this solution
for terminating the non-connecting end of the card is inefficient.
The card guide disclosed herein integrates into a single part connectors,
planar board and stiffener.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the card guide in place. Fig. 3 is a detail
view of the card guide which replaces the connectors, planar board and stiffener.
It is formed as one part which is electrically inactive and functions as a receptacle
to guide and hold in place a printed circuit card.
