The Offset-Pad Termination.This termination, shown in view (A) of figure 3-7, is a variation of
clinch-lead termination. The pad is set off from the centerline of the hole. The lead clinch is also offset
from the hole centerline so that it may contact the pad [view (B)].

ABOVE-THE-BOARD TERMINATION.Above-the-board termination is accomplished through
the use of terminals or posts. Terminals are used for a variety of reasons. The type of terminal depends on
its use. Although many configurations are used, all terminals fall into one of the five categories covered in
this section [figure 3-8, views (A) through (E)].
