Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2341280A] A terminal connector for use in mounting an electrical component such as the frame (6) of an inductance winding bobbin, on a printed circuit board (9), is formed by a pressing operation, such as from brass. The terminal connector comprises a first portion (8) in the form of a toothed finger, which may be inserted securely into a receiving aperture (7) of the electrical component, and a second portion (10) for insertion into the receiving aperture (16) of a printed circuit board (8). The second portion (10) is resiliently compressible in one cross-sectional dimension, and is initially oversized in relation to the dimensions of the aperture (16), such that on insertion of the portion (10) into the aperture (16), the portion (10) is radially compressed, and by virtue of the resilience of the material from which it is formed, maintains good contact with the soldered walls bounding the aperture (16). In this way it has been found that a connection may be made with the printed circuit board without the requirement subsequently to solder the terminal connector to the printed circuit board.
