Abstract

This article describes a relatively low-cost, high density connector for connecting a printed-circuit card 10 to a printed-circuit board 11. The card 10 has circuit pads 12 on its surface. The top row of pads is soldered to a spring connector 15, and the bottom row of pads is soldered to an H-shaped tuning fork connector 17. The spring connectors 15 make contact with pins 19, while the tuning fork connector 17 makes connection with pins 20. Pins 19 and 20 are soldered into board 11.
