Abstract (en)

A surface mount connector is disclosed having an improved terminal construction that avoid shorting between adjacent terminal contact portions, while maintaining a multipole structure with a reduced pitch of the terminal solder tail portions. The connector has an insulative connector housing with a plurality of terminals loaded in the housing on opposite sides of an opposing connector engaging slot. The terminals have contact portions that face into the slot and which are arranged in parallel in a predetermined pitch. Solder tail portions of the terminals extend underneath portions of the terminals and are arranged in parallel in a pitch that is one-half that of the pitch of the terminal contact portions. <IMAGE>
