The integral interconnect socket and flexible board assembly accepts an electronic module having a plurality of leads arranged in a predetermined pattern. The assembly includes a flexible printed circuit (PC) board having a plurality of conductors and a first set of holes disposed to respectively intersect the conductors. A substantially rigid platform is mounted to the PC board and has a second set of holes. The first and second set of holes are in alignment and define common apertures arranged in the predetermined pattern to receive the leads of the modules. A layer of metal plating formed within the apertures makes electrical connections with the respective conductors. Jacks are mounted to each aperture for receiving the leads and making electrical connections between the leads and the conductors.
