A submission from Mill-Max about Solderless press-fit receptacles for flush mounting in PCBs

The ongoing pursuit to reduce product and/or package size presents challenges for making connections between PCBs and devices.  With zero profile receptacles, Mill-Max has eliminated any above board connector protrusion, enabling overall package height to be reduced. These receptacles have a precision machined, hexagon shaped flange which is pressed into the PCB Plated Through-Hole (PTH) until flush with the surface of the board.  No soldering is required as the press-fit forms a gas-tight connection with a properly specified plated through hole.  After installation, the zero profile PCB contacts enable a broad range of devices to be plugged in while minimizing overall interconnect height.  They may be used on both traditional and rigid backed flex PCB’s.
