Abstract

See full text

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.
