Abstract

Fig. 1 depicts a conventional connector which is used for connecting cables to a logic board. Essentially, the female portion of the connector consists of spring tabs soldered to a card. A housing or shroud then covers the connection. These connections are then connected by lands to positions on the board. The male portion of the connector consists of pins which are connected to cables. The pins are connected to wires in the cable and are inserted into a housing (not shown).
