elastomeric connector

A circuit board packaging device that allows a quick connection and alignment of electronic devices. Typically used to attach LCD panels to a board, the connector is a flexible polymer bar with alternating conductive and non-conductive bands. The conductive bands adhere to the contact pads on both devices.

The key to affordability and predictable performance is a low parts count, robust, hermetically sealed, radiation coupled, MMIC module that uses elastomeric connectors for DC and logic intercinnections.
Electrical contact is achieved at assembly by compressing elastomeric connectors between the modules and the wiring boards, as shown in Figure 3.
These DC terminals are connected to the multilayered wiring boards through compressible elastomeric connectors. The terminals are fed through the module substrate to the interior DC and logic traces on the top side through metalized, hermetic via holes.
