Claim of US Patent No. 10,342,132

1. A memory device, comprising:a first printed circuit board (PCB) having a first thickness, a first end, and a second end opposite the first end, wherein the first PCB is to house one or more memory modules disposed on at least one side of the first PCB in an area proximate to the first end of the first PCB, wherein the area of the first PCB proximate the first end has the first thickness;
at least one layer having a second thickness, wherein the at least one layer is attached to the at least one side of the first PCB proximate to an edge of the first PCB that comprises the second end of the first PCB, wherein the second end is to form a memory device portion that is insertable into a connector slot disposed on a second PCB; and
an interconnect disposed on the at least one side of the first PCB around the second end of the first PCB to provide an air gap between the at least one layer and the interconnect, wherein the interconnect is to electrically couple the one or more memory modules of the first PCB with the second PCB, wherein the insertable portion has a thickness that comprises the first and second thicknesses, to fit into the connector slot of the second PCB.
