Title
(EN) A CONNECTOR (17) INCLUDING ELASTIC CONTACT ARMS (15)
(FR) CONNECTEUR (17) COMPRENANT DES BRAS DE CONTACT ÉLASTIQUES (15)
Abstract
(EN)
A scalable, low cost, reliable, compliant, low profile, low insertion force, high- density, separable and reconnectable connector for high speed, high performance electronic circuitry and semiconductors. The electrical connector can be used to make, for example, electrical connections from components such as a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) to another PCB, MPU, NPU, or other semiconductor device. A normalized working range for an array of elastic contacts of the interposer can be about 0.2 to 1.0. A reversible normalized working range is maintained through multiple connections and reconnections using a highly elastic material for the contact arms. In one aspect, a first electrical component having a first array pitch can be connected to a second electrical component having a second array pitch.

La présente invention concerne un connecteur adaptable, économique, fiable, conforme, séparable, raccordable, extra-plat, à faible force d'insertion et à densité élevée pour circuit électronique et semi-conducteurs rapides et haute performance. Le connecteur électrique peut être employé pour, par exemple, établir des connexions électriques entre des composants tels qu'une carte de circuits imprimés (PCB) et un autre composant, une PCB, une UC, une NPU ou un autre type de dispositif à semi-conducteur. Une plage utile normalisée pour une matrice de contacts élastiques de l'élément d'interposition est comprise entre environ 0,2 et 1,0. Une plage utile normalisée réversible est maintenue par des connexions et reconnexions multiples grâce à l'emploi d'un matériau hautement élastique pour les bras de contact. Selon un mode de réalisation, un premier composant électrique doté d'un premier pas longitudinal peut être connecté à un second composant électrique doté d'un second pas longitudinal.
