The disclosure relates to electrical connectors positioned between adjacent printed circuit boards for interconnection therebetween. The terminal arrangements on each printed circuit board are predesigned for compatibility with the connector to be used.

In accordance with the first embodiment of the connector, a zero insertion force connector is positioned over outwardly extending pins from the printed circuit boards and is then locked to the pins by a camming action within the connector. In accordance with the second embodiment, the connector is formed in male and female halves, contact to the board by the connector being by means of a normal force engagement against pads on the printed circuit board. Extensions of lines to further adjacent printed circuit boards is provided by way of additional connectors of the same type mounted in the same manner. Circuits are continued by means of plated through apertures or the like in the printed circuit board to interconnect pads on opposite sides of the printed circuit board.
