  • Patent number: 10490959
    Abstract: An electrical receptacle connector is provided for contacting conductive surfaces of a conductive substrate. The connector includes an insulated housing out of a terminal retaining member and an outer shell enclosing the insulated housing. The outer shell includes two side plates extending toward two sides of a mount member at the rear portion of the insulated housing. The conductive substrate is inserted into the mount member and in contact with first receptacle terminals. An embedded member is inserted between the side plates for positioning the conductive substrate. Hence, the electrical receptacle connector can be connected with the conductive substrate without connecting to an additional FPC receptacle connector and additional terminals of the FPC connector. Consequently, a product with the connector can be assembled with flexible circuit board or flexible flat cables, and the circuit board or cable can be replaced easily when the board or the cable has defects.

  • Patent number: 10468808
    Abstract: An electrical plug connector includes a plurality of terminals and an insulator, a pair of grounding latches, a shielding spring and a shielding shell. Each of the terminals has a contacting segment and an elastic segment. Each of the contacting segments has a stopping face. The insulator partially covers the terminals and has a plurality of stopping edges. When the electrical plug connector is inserted into an electrical receptacle connector, shape deformation of each of the elastic segments shifts the corresponding contacting segment until the corresponding stopping edge is against the corresponding stopping face, and each contacting segment does not protrude from the insulator. When the electrical plug connector is not inserted into the electrical receptacle connector, shape recovery of each of the elastic segments restores the corresponding contacting segment and the corresponding stopping edge is away from the stopping face.

  • Patent number: 10305227
    Abstract: An electrical receptacle connector includes a metallic shell, a terminal module in the metallic shell, a baffle plate at a rear portion of the metallic shell, and conductive ground legs. Accordingly, the baffle plate is at the rear portion of the metallic shell, and the conductive ground legs are at two sides of the metallic shell. Therefore, during the connector transmits data, the produced noises are shielded by the baffle plate, and the current formed by the noises is guided to a circuit board through the conductive ground legs, thus the noises are grounded and diminished. The conductive ground legs are adjacent to the baffle plate. Hence, the current flowing through the baffle plate is guided to the circuit board through the conductive ground legs, with a shorter path. Therefore, the current would not have antenna effect easily on the path, and the noise spreading can be reduced.
