Title: CONNECTOR WITH ANCHORING POWER PIN
Abstract:
Anchoring power pins are described herein. In one embodiment, a system includes a circuit board including a through hole, and a connector for coupling a module with the circuit board. The connector includes housing including a module-facing side to receive the module and a circuit board-facing side to couple with the circuit board. The connector includes a conductive power pin to both physically anchor the connector to the circuit board and electrically couple the module with the circuit board, the conductive power pin including a tip protruding from the circuit board-facing side of the connector to extend into a matching through hole in the circuit board.
