Title: CONNECTOR WITH STRUCTURES FOR BI-LATERAL DECOUPLING OF A HARDWARE INTERFACE
Abstract:
Techniques and mechanisms to provide a connector for securing to a first printed circuit board (PCB). In an embodiment, the connector is configured to receive a second PCB, where a first hardware interface of the connector includes conductors to facilitate bilateral decoupling from (and coupling to) respective hardware interfaces of the first PCB and the second PCB. A first conductor of the first hardware interface includes a first portion configured to move, relative to a housing structure of the connector, in response to the connector receiving a portion of a device which comprises the second PCB. A second portion of the first conductor is configured to be brought into contact with a conductive pad of the device. In another embodiment, the connector includes housing structures configured to move relative to one another while the connector is secured to the first PCB.
