Abstract (en)

A card edge connector for mounting on a circuit board (14) and removably receiving a circuit card (16) includes an elongated housing (26) defining a card receiving slot (34). Numerous terminal receiving cavities (44, 46) intersect and extend to both sides of the slot (34). Alternate cavities include stamped reference (ground or power) terminals (60) and signal terminals (62), all having downwardly extending board contacts (72, 92) and upwardly extending spring arms (76, 78; 96, 98). There are numerous similar sets of face to face contacts, each including a reference contact parallel to and substantially overlying an opposed pair of signal contacts. <IMAGE>
