  • Patent number: 9253895
    Abstract: An electrical assembly includes a first lead, a second lead, and an electrical component extending from a first end to a second end. A first non-electrically conductive adhesive member mechanically connects the first lead to the first end of the electrical component. A second non-electrically conductive adhesive member mechanically connects the second lead to the second end of the electrical component. A first electrically conductive adhesive member electrically connects the first lead to the first end of the electrical component. A second electrically conductive adhesive member electrically connects the second lead to the second end of the electrical component.

  • Patent number: 8075321
    Abstract: A connector and cable assembly is provided for mounting on a printed circuit board. The assembly includes a ribbon cable having an end that includes an electrical conductor. The assembly also includes an electrical connector that includes a dielectric body comprising a circuit side, a cable side that is opposite the circuit side, and a contact opening that extends through the body. The electrical connector also includes an electrical contact having a cable segment and a tail extending from the cable segment. The electrical contact is held within the contact opening such that at least a portion of the cable segment extends along the cable side of the body and at least a portion of the tail projects from the circuit side of the body. The cable segment is electrically connected to the electrical conductor of the ribbon cable. The tail is configured to be separably mated with the printed circuit board.

  • Patent number: 7963796
    Abstract: A bridge connector configured to electrically and mechanically couple adjacent circuit boards. The connector includes a connector housing that has a mating side configured to interface with board surfaces of adjacent circuit boards when mounted thereon. The housing includes a contact-receiving slot that at least partially defines a restricted space. The connector also includes a bridge contact that is held within the slot and the restricted space. The bridge contact has a pair of contact ends that are spaced apart from each other and project from the mating side. The contact ends are inserted into corresponding through-holes of the adjacent circuit boards when the housing is mounted thereon. The bridge contact is sized and shaped relative to the restricted space to float within the slot such that the bridge contact at least one of shifts and pivots therein.

  • Patent number: 7862376
    Abstract: A compliant pin is configured to be press-fit into a cavity of at least one of a connector assembly and a substrate to retain the pin in the cavity. The pin includes a neck, a plurality of compliant beams, and an insertion tip. The neck interconnects the pin with the connector assembly. The beams are configured to engage an inner surface of the cavity to retain the pin in the cavity. The beams are arranged side-to-side and project along a longitudinal plane in a loading direction. The beams have arcuate portions that are arched in different directions transverse to the longitudinal plane. The arcuate portions are shaped to deflect toward the longitudinal plane without substantially engaging one another. The insertion tip interconnects the ends of the beams.

  • Patent number: 7661998
    Abstract: An electrical contact configured to engage an electrical component. The contact includes a compressive body that is configured to be press-fit into a hole of the electrical component. The body includes a center portion and a pair of opposing arcuate arms that extend along a central axis. The arcuate arms project from the center portion to respective end portions and are configured to bend toward each other when inserted into the hole. The arcuate arms form a transition region and a compliant region of the body where the transition region engages the hole before the compliant region. The end portions of the transition region have a first arcuate path and the end portions of the compliant region have a second arcuate path. The second arcuate path has a greater radius of curvature than the first arcuate path before the body is inserted into the hole.
