Using traditional methods, it took several process steps to connect two boards to each other vertically. First, the connectors had to be soldered to both PCBs. Additional spacer pins for mechanical joining and secure fixation of the clearance were required when plugging the PCBs together. With ept flexilink b-t-b and the press-fit technology it provides, both PCBs are connected electrically and mechanically in just one process step. No additional screw connections are needed thanks to its high intrinsic stability. The electrical and mechanical connection is maintained even while molding the assembly. The assembly size and costs can be reduced in most any scenario.
The flexilinkb-t-b is available for 5–25 mm board spacings with one to three rows and pin counts from 2 to 90.
