Title: Solder assembly of pins to the peripheral end face of a printed circuit board

Abstract

A printed circuit board (PCB) and PCB assembly. The PCB is formed of a laminate substrate of at least two layers of a non-conductive material forming at least one peripheral end face (PEF) surface separating top and bottom PCB surfaces. Embedded conductive wiring at one or more multiple layers carry energy to or from PCB surface mounted devices. The conductive wiring provides multiple conductive wire ends exposed at multiple locations along the PEF. A conductive contact structure is formed at the PEF surface to connect with one or more of the exposed conductive wire ends. One or more conductive pins are attached to the conductive contact at the PEF and are configured to mount the PCB on, and in a vertical and perpendicular orientation or a coplanar orientation relative to, a surface of a second PCB surface. The conductive pins provide one or more of: an electrical, thermal and/or mechanical contact.
