BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a box mounting structure for an electronic device in which a box that houses a printed circuit board on which circuit components are mounted is attached to the main body of the electronic device.
[0002]
[Prior art]
In recent years, in the process of mounting circuit components on printed circuit boards of electronic devices, automatic mounting devices configured to automatically mount surface mount components, through-hole components, etc. at predetermined positions have been widely introduced and work in the mounting process Time saving and labor saving are realized. Normally, when automatic mounting of circuit components is performed with this device, a base substrate having an external dimension standardized on the mounting line of the device is prepared in advance, and a plurality of printed circuit boards having the same shape and wired in the same pattern are prepared on the base substrate. It is arranged so that it can be taken. By doing so, it is possible to increase the number of mounting parts per base substrate and perform the mounting process by the automatic mounting apparatus more efficiently.
[0003]
For example, two printed circuit boards 51, 51 having the same rectangular shape are arranged on the base substrate 50 in FIGS. These printed circuit boards 51 and 51 are provided with an outer frame serving as an outer peripheral edge of the base board 50 in order to secure strength sufficient to withstand the mounting process and transport process of circuit components by an automatic mounting apparatus and at the same time to make it easy to individually divide after completion of mounting. It is arranged in 52 via a groove 53 and a V cut 54. The printed circuit boards 51 and 51 are connected to each other by two perforations 55. Illustration of pattern wiring and mounted parts on the printed circuit boards 51 and 51 is omitted.
[0004]
The individual printed circuit boards 51 that have been divided after the completion of mounting are, for example, from noise entering from outside or the high frequency circuit of the printed circuit board itself when a high frequency circuit is mounted for an electronic device such as a satellite broadcasting system or a CATV system. In order to shield radiated noise, it is usually housed in a shield case and mounted in the electronic device body. For example, as a conventional shield case, the one described in Patent Document 1 is known. The shield case of this patent document 1 is to store the printed circuit board 51 so as to be covered with a pair of shield cases having the same shape from both the upper and lower sides, and is provided on the tongue piece provided on the case side and the electronic device main body rear panel. The tongue piece is attached to the electronic device main body by screwing.
[0005]
[Patent Document 1]
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 6-196889
However, in the shield case of Patent Document 1, since the divided perforation portion 55 is left as a protrusion on one long side end portion 51a of the printed circuit board 51, the long side end portion 51a and the side surface of the shield case are left. There was a problem that the inside of the printed board 51 could not be stored in close contact, and the component mounting effective area of the printed circuit board 51 was reduced by the gap. Moreover, since a space for providing a tongue piece for screwing is required between the shield case of Patent Document 1 and the electronic device main body, there is a problem that the electronic device main body is enlarged by that amount. .
[0007]
In order to solve these problems, a shield case 60 as shown in FIGS. 3 and 4 has been devised. The shield case 60 includes a side cover 61 whose upper and lower surfaces are open, and an upper cover 62 and a lower cover 63 that can close the upper and lower surfaces of the side cover 61, respectively. Side portions 62 a and 63 a that can be attached to the upper and lower peripheral end portions of the side cover 61 protrude from the upper surface cover 62 and the lower surface cover 63, respectively. In the side cover 61, when the printed circuit board 51 is stored, a screwing portion 64 is bent at a position where the perforated portion 55 hits, and an opening 65 is opened by the bending. Further, a screwing portion 66 similar to the screwing portion 64 is also formed on the opposing surface of the side cover 61 by bending at one place. Further, the side cover 61 is provided with four fixing protrusions 67 for fixing the printed circuit board 51 at predetermined positions.
[0008]
In the shield case 60, the printed circuit board 51 is assembled from the lower surface of the side cover 61 with the perforated portion 55 aligned with the opening 65. In a state where the printed circuit board 51 is fixed at a predetermined position by the fixing protrusion 67 of the side cover 61, the opening 65 allows the perforation 55 to escape to the outside, and the long side end 51 a of the printed circuit board 51 is formed inside the side cover 61. Adhere to the side. The printed circuit board 51 is housed in the shield case 60 by attaching the upper surface cover 62 and the lower surface cover 63 to the side surface cover 61.
[0009]
According to the shield case 60, the screwing portion 64 is bent and formed in accordance with the position of the perforation portion 55, and the perforation portion 55 is allowed to escape outward from the opening 65. The part 51a can be stored in close contact with the inside of the side surface of the shield case 60, and the component mounting effective area can be increased by the gap generated in the shield case of Patent Document 1.
[0010]
However, as in Patent Document 1, the shield case 60 is attached by screwing the screw fixing portions 64 and 66 formed by bending from the side thereof and the screw fixing bases 68 and 69 of the electronic device main body 70 with screws 58. For this reason, there still remains a problem that the electronic device main body 70 is increased in size by the screwing space.
[0011]
In addition, the side cover 61 increases in height in the vertical direction as the component height of the circuit component mounted on the printed circuit board 51 is increased. Therefore, a circuit component having a high component height is provided on the lower surface side of the printed circuit board 51. At the time of mounting, it is necessary to secure the height of the lower surface cover 63 and the printed circuit board 51 by moving the bending position of the screwing section 64 that allows the perforated portion 55 of the printed circuit board 51 to escape. In this case, the opening 65 having an enlarged opening area cannot be completely closed by the side portion 63a of the lower surface cover 63, and the shield characteristic of the shield case 60 is deteriorated.
[0012]
[Problems to be solved by the invention]
In view of these problems, the present invention provides a box mounting structure for an electronic device that can increase the component mounting effective area of the printed circuit board regardless of the protrusion of the protrusion, reduce the size of the electronic device, and further prevent deterioration of the shield characteristics. The challenge is to achieve this.
[0013]
