Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0949724A2] Electrical connector (1) with an insulating housing (10), and electrical contacts (20) which are fastened to the housing (10), for electrically connecting a first circuit board (30) and a substantially parallel second circuit board (40). The contacts (20) have cantilever contact sections (22) which extend from fastening sections (21) cast in the housing (10) into openings between housing partition walls (10a), and which resiliently engage an undersurface of the first circuit board (30) with arcuate surfaces stamped and formed from a metal plate. The cantilever contact sections (22) are bent from the fastening sections (21) and have supporting-point members (24) which bear on the second circuit board (40) when the cantilever contact sections (22) are flexed by contact with the first circuit board (30). The connector (1) has a low profile and provides high contact pressure between the contacts (20) and the circuit boards (30, 40). <IMAGE>
