  • Patent number: 10777941
    Abstract: Provided is a connector having a reduced profile that is capable of facilitating confirmation of the mounting on a circuit board and, simultaneously, demonstrating a satisfactory noise-shielding effect. A connector (10) according to the present disclosure includes: a first connector (20) equipped with a pair of outer peripheral walls (32) opposing each other and a fitting projection (33) formed between the pair of outer peripheral walls (32); and a second connector (70) equipped with a second insulator (80) having a fitting recess (83) fit to the fitting protruding (33) and a second shielding member (110) supported by the second insulator (80). When the first connector (20) and the second connector (70) are fitted to each other, the first shielding member (60) and the second shielding member (110) engage each other are partially spaced apart from the first insulator (30) and the second insulator (80), respectively.

  • Patent number: 10601182
    Abstract: Provided is a connector that has a reduced profile and is capable of bringing shielding structures of two connectors coupled together into contact with each other. A connector (10) according to the present disclosure includes a first connector (20) and a second connector (70). The first connector (20) is equipped with a first insulator (30) that includes a pair of outer peripheral walls (32) opposing each other and a fitting projection (33) formed between the pair of outer peripheral walls (32), and a first shielding member (60) supported by the first insulator (30). The second connector (70) includes a second insulator (80) equipped with a fitting recess (83) fit to the fitting projection (33), and a second shielding member (110) supported by the second insulator (80). When the first connector (20) and the second connector (70) are fitted to each other, the first shielding member (60) and the second shielding member (110) are fitted to each other.

  • Publication number: 20190181573
    Abstract: Provided is a contact that has a reduced profile and is capable of demonstrating an excellent transmission characteristic with respect to a high frequency signal. A contact (40) according to the present disclosure is the contact (40) of a first connector (20) coupled to a second connector (70) in order to electrically couple a circuit board (CB1) and a circuit board (CB2) together, and includes: a first contact portion (45) that comes into contact with a contact (90) of the second connector (70) when the first connector (20) and the second connector (70) are coupled together; a pair of latches (42) latched to a first insulator (30) of the first connector (20); and a bend (43) that couples the pair of latches (42) together. The bend (43) is formed in a position lower than a part of the first contact portion (45) that protrudes the most toward the bend (43).

  • Publication number: 20180287282
    Abstract: Provided are a connector and connector system that achieve stable grounding capability, signaling capability, power supply capability, and the like, and that are highly robust and have excellent workability while responding to the demand for size reduction. A connector includes a solid insulator (30) and one or two conducting members (40) covering a portion of the surface of the solid insulator (30). The solid insulator (30) and the conducting members (40) cooperate with each other to form a fitting projection that fits into a fitting recess of a counterpart connector (50).
