GB-Matrix type Inter-Connectors consist of multiple rows of metal filaments embedded symmetrically in a sheet of insulating silicone rubber. Since the pitch or the thickness is changeable up to electrode layout, GB-Matrix type is used for comprehensive applications such as PCB, assembly and testing device.
