Abstract (en)

A low profile surface mount electrical connector is adapted for connecting an electronic component such as an IC card on a planar surface of a printed circuit board which includes circuit traces thereon. The connector has a generally flat dielectric housing overmolded about a plurality of electrical terminals. The housing has a bottom surface for mounting on the printed circuit board, an opening for receiving the IC card, and a mounting bar along one side of the opening. Each terminal includes a base overmolded in the mounting bar of the housing. A beam extends from the base and includes a surface mount section for electrical connection to a circuit trace on the printed circuit board. A contact arm is joined to the beam at a U-shaped joint and extends back over the beam. The contact arm terminates in a contact portion at the opening in the housing for electrical connection to the IC card. <IMAGE>
