  • Patent number: 10418735
    Abstract: A micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) terminal structure of board-to-board electrical connector and manufacturing method thereof are provided. The terminal of the terminal structure includes a side arm, a bent portion, and a flexible arm integrally formed as one component. The flexible arm includes a first portion and a second portion. The first portion and the side arm form an insertion space. The second portion and the side arm form a locking space. The second portion of the flexible arm has a contact portion. The insertion space is greater than the locking space. The terminal has curved and locking features to extend the moment arm of the terminal for improving the terminal flexibility. The terminal contacts a mating terminal through multiple points, thereby improving the contact stability and providing the locking function. Furthermore, by using the MEMS techniques for semiconductor industries, the terminal of micro board-to-board electrical connector can be manufactured.

  • Patent number: 10069224
    Abstract: An electrical plug connector includes a plug insulated housing which is integrally formed and plug terminals. A transition segment connected between first and second contact portions of each plug terminal allows the first contact portion to be in contact with and arranged substantially parallel to the second contact portion, so that connectors with reduced width can be manufactured. In addition, the shaping space between a first recessed portion and a second recessed portion of each plug terminal receive materials for forming the plug insulated housing, thus improving the structural strength of the connector. Moreover, embedded ends allow the plug terminals to be secured with the plug bottom wall, so that the plug terminals would not detach from the plug insulated housing easily during manufacturing or operation. The structural strength of the electrical plug connector can be improved, and the plug terminals can be properly assembled with the plug insulated housing.

  • Patent number: 10014608
    Abstract: An electrical plug connector and an electrical receptacle connector adapted to be mated with the electrical plug connector are provided. The electrical receptacle connector includes an insulated housing integrally formed as a whole and a plurality of receptacle terminals. Based on a supporting arm of a first side arm of the receptacle terminal, when the plug terminal is abutted against the first side arm, the supporting arm is abutted against an abutting surface of the electrical receptacle connector for supporting the first side arm and improving the structural strength of the first side arm. Therefore, the first side arm can be prevented from being deformed or broken. In addition, based on a supporting segment of a second side arm of the receptacle terminal, the flexibility of second side arm can be improved and the structural strength of the second side arm can be enhanced.

  • Patent number: 9455536
    Abstract: An electrical connector includes insulating portions arranged side by side, terminal sets, shield sets, and a casing. Each terminal set includes signal terminals and ground terminals. Each signal/ground terminal includes a fixing section disposed in the insulating portion, an assembling section downwardly stretching from the fixing section to protrude from the insulating portion, and a contacting section forwardly stretching from the fixing section to protrude from the insulating portion. Each shield set including shields is disposed on a lateral surface of the insulating portion. Each shield is spacedly arranged and connected to the ground terminal. Each shield includes a body section having at least one bending section, and a protrusion section protruding from the body section. The body section and the protrusion section shield the assembling section and the contacting section of the signal terminal respectively. It can effectively suppress crosstalk between the signal terminals by the shield sets.

  • Patent number: 9437975
    Abstract: A crosstalk-proof receptacle connector has multiple insulative boards, multiple sets of terminals, multiple sets of shielding plates and an outer casing. The insulative boards are arranged abreast. The sets of the terminals are mounted respectively in the insulative boards. The terminals of each set are classified into signal terminals and grounding terminals. Each set of the shielding plates is mounted on one of two opposite sides of a corresponding insulative board. The shielding plates of each set are spaced apart without contacting one another. Each shielding plate has multiple folding sections capable of interrupting signal noise. The outer casing covers the insulative boards to combine the insulative boards. The sets of the shielding plates decrease signal interference of the receptacle connector and improve signal transmission efficiency and stability.
