05118300 is referenced by 33 patents and cites 20 patents.

An active connector (110,160) including a first dielectric body (112,162) having an L shape and having two arrays of pin contacts having pin portions extending outwardly from mounting surfaces which intersect at a right angle for the connector to be disposed in the corner of circuit elements (12,20) also at right angles, with the pins connected to circuits of the circuit elements. The first dielectric body (112,162) includes conductive paths extending to aligned arrays of pads along the two edge surfaces (122,124) remote from the inside corner, the edge surfaces being coplanar defining a plane traversing the L shape. A second dielectric body (152,200) having a chip (24,24') thereon traverses the inside corner between the edge surfaces, so that contact means of the chip or of the second body connected to the chip contacts, are connected to corresponding pads on the angled edge surfaces of the first body (112,162) thus interconnecting and modifying the circuits of the two circuit elements (12,20) while being easily demountable and replaceable.
