Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9732366A1] An electrical connector (1) having enhanced grounding characteristics utilizes an insulating housing (2) with a plurality of conductive terminals (3) mounted inside, and a metal grounding shield (4) covering the connector housing. The grounding shield has at least one grounding lead piece (9) formed integrally therewith and bent inward. The grounding lead extends into contact with a selected terminal inside of the connector to thereby function as a grounding terminal to provide a convenient grounding path in close proximity to the grounding circuit when high-frequency current signals are induced in the grounding shield.
