06679709 is referenced by 53 patents.

The invention provides a connector which is easily manufactured and connects a circuit board in good condition. The connector according to the invention is a CPU socket to be surface-mounted on a circuit board

2

, comprising a terminal

5

attached inside an internal case

4

a

made of an insulating material and a solder

6

fixed to the terminal

5

. A connecting section

11

of the terminal

5

is provided with a pair of bar-like pieces

12

, and has first claw sections

13

and a second claw section

14

. In order to fix the solder

6

to the connecting section

11

, tip ends of the first claw sections

13

are caulked by bending so that the tip ends contact with each other. The connecting section

11

is provided with an internal passage

15

connecting the upper and lower sides thereof. The solder

6

does not come off the terminal

5

because the solder

6

is attached to the internal case

4

a

after fixed to the connecting section

11

of the terminal

5

by caulking. In addition, it is easy to improve coplanarity of the tip end of each solder

6

because a length of the solder

6

protruding from the connecting section

11

is adjustable by changing the caulking position of the solder

6.
