A circuit board connector assembly for an active implantable medical device (AIMD) has been patented, comprising a circuit board with at least one electrical circuit, a terminal pin connector with a connector housing and electrically conductive connector prongs, and an insulative material coating the connector housing. The insulative material can be selected from a wide range of options including silicone, polyurethane, polyethylene, and more. Additionally, nanoparticles such as Al2O3, SiO2, and ZrO2 can be included in the insulative material to enhance its properties.

Furthermore, the AIMD housing contains the circuit board and terminal pin connector, along with a feedthrough connected to the AIMD housing. The feedthrough includes an electrically conductive ferrule, insulator, insulator passageway, and electrically conductive terminal pin. The insulative material used in the AIMD is similar to that in the circuit board connector assembly, with the addition of nanoparticle materials for improved performance. The connector housing of the terminal pin connector in the AIMD can have a clip base supporting multiple connector prongs, allowing for repeated insertions and retractions of the feedthrough terminal pin. Overall, the patented technology aims to provide a reliable and efficient connection system for AIMDs, ensuring proper electrical conductivity and insulation for safe and effective operation.
