Clip Secures Circuit-to-Board Connections

A first-to-market component, the ClipLok interconnect secures a membrane switch or FPC tail firmly to a PCB, eliminating mating connectors at each point. Reportedly less bulky than similar interconnects, it securely bonds circuits together via a spring-type mechanism. Electrical connections initiate when switch circuits wrap around the PCB edge. Also, a built-in feature guides the assembler in the correct placement of the clip and circuit. MOLEX INC., Lisle, IL. (800) 786-6539.
