Abstract

A circuit card is provided with printed-circuit interconnections on the reverse sides thereof, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The parallel wiring of one row of terminal positions at each side of the card provides two connecting block locations 3 and 4 which include identical pin locations. This enables signals to be sent to two separate destinations without the loss of any board card slots while helping to eliminate reversing type problems that may be encountered when connecting cables to one another. Further, the card may function as an extender when required.
