edge connector

[′ej kə‚nek·tər]
(electronics)
A row of etched lines on the edge of a printed circuit board that is inserted into a slot to establish a connection with another printed circuit board.

edge connector

The protruding part of an expansion card that is inserted into an expansion slot. It contains a series of printed lines that go to and come from the circuits on the board. The number of lines (pins) and the width and depth of the lines are different on the various interfaces (ISA, EISA, PCI, Micro Channel, etc.).


Edge Connector
Edge connectors are very popular because they are "printed" onto the outer layers of the board in the same process that creates the circuit lines.








Plug In Cartridges
Edge connectors provide a simple connection mechanism for cartridges such as these educational programs for preschoolers.

Other typical reasons for using fixturing include instances where the board edge clearance is not to SMEMA standards, or if components hang over the edge of the board, as in edge connectors. Another reason might be if a panel of boards is of a particularly thin PCB material, or double scored, or heavy toward the center, the board may need fixturing to hold it flat so that the small solder wave does not contact the bellying of that board.
