Claim of US Patent No. 10,091,894

1. An electronic control module for a transmission control, comprising:a printed circuit board having an upper placement side and conducting paths;
at least one electrical component having an electrically conductive terminal section;
a press contact that includes a first portion pressed into an opening in the printed circuit board and a mating terminal section, the press contact configured such that the press contact is mechanically fixed to the printed circuit board and forms both a mechanical and an electrical contact with a conducting path of the printed circuit board, wherein the electrically conductive terminal section and a subarea of the mating terminal section are arranged parallel to the placement side of the printed circuit board, the press contact further comprising a central portion located between the first portion and the mating terminal section and having a lowermost surface extending upwardly away from the mating terminal section and downwardly toward the first portion; and
a weld connection between the electrically conductive terminal section of the electrical component and the subarea of the mating terminal section of the press contact.
