As the title suggests, I'm looking for a name for the connectors found on the rfm12b and other devices...

They are pcb connectors and they work as either smd or dip with pin header...

As well, can the average board house fabricate these?
Anyone have an eagle lbr or experience?

Thanks,
Michael

They are ordinary square pads that have been cut in half when the boards are separated.

I've always seen those referred to as castellations. I think most PCB fabs can do them but you should check with your fab first as there can be some issues.

It's better than that Leon. The side is "plated through"

This type of edge connections can be found on f.i. Bluetooth- and GSM-modules.

I have also pondered on how to create those on homebrewed psb's.

I don't think you can, unless you can do PTH. The same process is probably used for the edges. I've got some surface-mount LED displays that are similar.

The hole thing is how strong they can make VIA's.

Plons,

You can do edge plating with sme conductive inks.

Namely use conductive inkto create initial conductive surface and then electrolytically deposit copper.

Alternatively there are silver loaded inks such a those used in conductive trace printing which need no electrolytic copper.They will provide a good mechanical NON SOLDERED CONTACTS.

Soldering them will disolve silver into solder providing for no conductive surface.

Carefull to cut the floppy or disk drive connector.
Use small triplex saw.
