Title: Motor vehicle transmission shifting device with a curved printed circuit board and process for manufacturing the printed circuit board

Abstract: A shifting device for the transmission of a motor vehicle with a curved printed circuit board inserted under the curved cover and to a process for preparing this curved printed circuit board with the components inserted. The shifting movements performed at the gearshift lever of the shifting device are electronically transmitted to the transmission. The components are inserted according to the present invention on a rigid printed circuit board in the flat state and the printed circuit board is soldered in the curved state, wherein the printed circuit board, consisting of glass fiber-reinforced epoxy resin, remains in this curved state after cooling due to its inner structure.
