A major OEM had already selected a Board-to-board interconnect solution, but was dissatisfied with the cost.
They asked Genesis to brainstorm a Gigabit multi pin solution to meet their cost goals. The part had to be rugged enough to withstand physical abuse of a large chassis to slide in and out multiple times. There had to be lead-in to self-align as the chassis is inserted and also shielded for possible EMI concerns that may arise during FCC Part 15 testing.
We leveraged existing and proven lead-frame designs from other technologies and mechanically adapted these tried and true lead frame designs into the custom solution that they were looking for. This gave the client a custom solution that fit their exact needs and was able to deliver a prototype sample in a much shorter time than usual. The overall tooling costs were also lowered, and finally a piece part cost that was 70% lower cost than their original selection.
Genesis presented the concepts to the customer and the end product was design and manufactured with the Genesis product design solution.
