  • Patent number: 10237979
    Abstract: An electronic module includes a circuit board, a first component, and a socket element with a first surface and a second surface opposite the first surface. The first surface lies on a surface of the circuit board and is fixed to the circuit board. A second component is secured to the socket element and is electrically connected to the circuit board via the socket element. A protective compound is arranged on the surface of the circuit board and encapsulates the first component. The socket element is partly embedded into the protective compound such that lateral flanks of the socket element are covered by the protective compound, and the second surface of the socket element protrudes out of the protective compound. Connection elements of the socket element and connections of the second component are connected via a welding connection. Second components are attachable to the circuit board in a reliable manner.

  • Publication number: 20180352666
    Abstract: An electronic module includes a first circuit board. The first circuit board has electronic components, spacers, a cover plate, and a casting compound. The spacers are positioned so as to rest at least in corner regions of the first circuit board. The cover plate is positioned on the spacers. The casting compound acts as an end face and seals a gap formed by the spacers between the first circuit board and the cover plate, so as to form a housing for the electronic components, which are positioned therein. The casting compound secures the cover plate to the first circuit board via positive engagement. A coefficient of linear thermal expansion of the casting compound corresponds substantially to a coefficient of linear thermal expansion of the circuit board and of the cover plate.

  • Patent number: 10091894
    Abstract: An electronic control module for a gear mechanism controller in motor vehicles includes a printed circuit board and an electrical component. The printed circuit board has a mounting side and includes conductor tracks. The electrical component has an electrically conductive connection section. The control module further includes a press contact that is pressed into an opening in the printed circuit board such that it is mechanically fixed to the printed circuit board. The press contact forms an electrical contact with a conductor track of the printed circuit board via an electrically conductive mating connection section of the press contact. The connection section of the electrical component is connected to the mating connection section of the press contact by a welded connection. The connection technique enables soldered connections to be dispensed with and replaced by cold pressing of press contacts and subsequent welding by, for example, a copper/copper laser welding process.

    Abstract: An electrical plug-type connector consisting of an electrically nonconductive material includes a plug housing with an inner wall and at least one plug-type contact. The inner wall delimits a first space. The at least one plug-type contact has a first end with which contact can be made by a mating plug-type contact, and a second end, which is opposite the first end. The second end is connected to a printed circuit board by solder. The plug housing is moved from the first end in a direction of the second end via the at least one plug-type contact in the axial direction into a predetermined position. In the predetermined position, the plug-type contact has a lack of force-fitting connection transversely to the axial direction. In the predetermined position, the printed circuit board is fixedly connected to the plug housing. In the predetermined position, the first end protrudes into the first space.
