Adapter with a housing body defining a chamber portion with first and second opposite side, electrical contacts arranged in a non-staggered pattern in a row across the first side of interior of chamber portion to make a non-hot-plug electrical connection with an electronic circuit board when the circuit board is inserted within interior of the chamber portion. The housing body defines an extension portion with a first side and a second opposite side. The electrical contacts arranged in a staggered pattern in a row across the first side of an exterior of the extension portion to make a hot-plug electrical connection with an external electrical connector. The electrical contacts provide continuous conductive paths between the chamber portion and the extension portion before the extension portion makes contact with the external connector. The electrical contacts have a higher insertion cycle characteristic than the electrical contact pads.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
