(DE) LEITENDE VERBINDUNGSVORRICHTUNG FÜR EINE FAHRZEUGANZEIGE
(EN) CONDUCTIVE CONNECTION DEVICE FOR VEHICLE DISPLAY
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CONNEXION DU TYPE CONDUCTEUR POUR AFFICHAGE DE VÉHICULE
Abstract
(EN) The disclosure provides for a vehicular display assembly. The assembly comprises a first PCB disposed on a first side of a display module, a second PCB comprising a surface arranged substantially perpendicular to the first PCB, and an electro-optic device disposed on a second side of the display module. The assembly further comprises a conductive connector device in connection with the surface of the second PCB. The conductive connector device comprises a spring assembly comprising a spring and a conductive pin. The conductive connector device further comprises a body forming an internal passage configured to at least partially house the spring assembly. The conductive pin is configured to communicatively connect the second PCB to the electro-optic device.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble d'affichage pour véhicule. L'ensemble comprend une première carte de circuit imprimé disposée sur un premier côté d'un module d'affichage, une deuxième carte de circuit imprimé comportant une surface disposée de manière sensiblement perpendiculaire par rapport à la première carte de circuit imprimé, et un dispositif électro-optique disposé sur un deuxième côté du module d'affichage. L'ensemble comprend en outre un dispositif à connecteur conducteur en relation avec la surface de la deuxième carte de circuit imprimé. Le dispositif à connecteur conducteur comporte un ensemble à ressort comportant un ressort et une broche conductrice. Le dispositif à connecteur conducteur comporte en outre un corps formant un passage interne configuré pour recevoir au moins partiellement l'ensemble à ressort. La broche conductrice est configurée pour connecter par communication la deuxième carte de circuit imprimé au dispositif électro-optique.
