Image Number 7 for United States Patent #7291038.
A connector capable of electrically connecting a printed circuit board to a flat cable without soldered connections. Each of a plurality of first connecting terminals provided at a first housing has a portion that sandwiches a predetermined conductor through an insulating coating of a flat cable and crimps the conductor. The first connecting terminals pass through holes provided in a cover. The first connecting terminals are brought into contact with conductive portions of a printed circuit board and electrically connected to the conductive portions. The printed circuit board has a wiring pattern one end of which is connected to a PCI card edge connector and the other end is connected to a through hole. Accordingly, the PCI card edge connector is electrically connected to the conductive portions of the flat cable through the first connecting terminals.
