CLAIM

1. The ornamental design for a coupling feature on a circuit board, as shown and described.

Description:

FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a pair of coupling features on a circuit board, showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a front elevation view thereof, the rear elevation view thereof being identical; and,

FIG. 5 is a front perspective view thereof in an unclaimed environment of use.

The broken lines shown in the figures represent unclaimed subject matter and form no part of the claimed design. The circuit board is shown with a symbolic break in its length, represented by a jagged break line. The appearance of any portion of the article beyond the break line forms no part of the claimed design.
