Neo900 Spring-Type Contacts
The following images show where spring-type contacts are located in the
N900, and what role they play. On the PCB, these contacts are either C
springs or just contact pads touched by a spring-like protrusion of a
component located in a mating part.
Since Neo900 interfaces with the same parts (from the original N900
design), it has to provide the same contacts.
We use the following color coding to indicate different types of signals:
Springs are indicated by rounded rectangles or circles, the location
where they touch (e.g., pad, shield, or similar) by a regular rectangle.
- Black indicates contacts that connect shields and similar metal
parts to ground.
- Blue indicates audio connections.
- Red indicates antenna connections.
- Green marks contacts that do not seem to have a peer.
Where it serves clarity, we link groups of mating contacts with a line.
The following images show the respective surfaces as they would appear
when viewing the assembled device from the top with "x-ray vision".
To this end, some images have been flipped (mirrored) along the Y axis.
This also corresponds to the orientation of the PCB surfaces in the
