ALEXANDRIA, VA -- The United States PTO Jan. 25 has issued a patent for an electrical PCB connector to Lotes Co. of Taiwan.

It describes "an electrical connector for electrically connecting an element to a circuit board includes at least two adjacent insulation bodies, a plugging slot located on the insulation bodies for being plugged with the element, and a set of conductive terminals disposed on the insulation bodies and electrically connected with the circuit board. One side of each of the insulation bodies is movably connected with the adjacent insulation body. When the circuit board undergoes soldering process, the relation position of the insulation bodies at the adjacent location is automatically adjusted according to the warp caused by the high temperature of soldering so as to reduce the warp and deformation. Thereby, the soldering portion of each conductive terminal received in the insulation bodies can be soldered onto the circuit board well, such that electrical connector is normally and electrically connected with the circuit board."

Patent no. is 7,874,875 named Wen Chang Chang as the inventor and Lotes as the assignee.

The patent was filed on Dec. 1, 2008, under Application No. 12/292,902.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
