  • Publication number: 20230198181
    Abstract: A connector comprises a plurality of terminals and a housing. The housing has an interposing portion extends in an up-down direction. The interposing portion has a first side portion and a second side portion in a width direction perpendicular to the up-down direction. Each of the terminals has an insertion end portion and a second extending portion. The second side portion has an allowance portion and a restriction portion. The allowance portion is nearer to the insertion end portion than the restriction portion in the up-down direction. The connector has a gap between the allowance portion and the second extending portion in the width direction. The allowance portion allows partial movement of the second extending portion into the gap. The restriction portion is in contact with the second extending portion in the width direction without any gap and thereby restricts movement of the second extending portion in the width direction.

  • Publication number: 20230145507
    Abstract: A connector includes lead parts and terminal parts to be connected to lands of a substrate, respectively. An anisotropic conductive joining member (ACJM) is mounted in a region where the lead parts are located. The ACJM is a resin in which solder particles are dispersed. The resin can melt at a temperature lower than the melting point of the solder particles. Cream solder is placed on the lands to be connected to the terminal parts. The substrate on which the connector is mounted is passed through a reflow oven to heat both the substrate and the connector. The connection between the terminal parts and the lands by reflow soldering and the connection between the lead parts and the lands via the ACJM 40 are performed simultaneously with each other.
