Subject: Specification for PCB Insertion Cycles
Just wondering if anybody knows of a specification (mil-spec or otherwise) that defines how many times a PCB should be able to be inserted onto a card edge connector before the laminate deteriorates or the contacts start to peel. For example, a computer video card being inserted and removed from a PC motherboard. I would appreciate any info that anybody has. Thanks in advance.
