Abstract (en)

A reduced weight and size shielded receptacle connector includes an internal insulative connector housing that has top and bottom walls, but does not have any sidewalls that interconnect the top and bottom walls together. The connector housing has a central support portion for supporting a plurality of conductive terminals within the connector. The terminals are supported within a receptacle portion of the connector that is formed in cooperation with the top and bottom walls of the connector housing and with a pair of metal sidewalls formed by bending a shield member around parts of the connector housing. A metal grounding shield is provided that also overlies a portion of the connector housing and which is retained on the connector housing by the metal shell. The metal shell and the shield cooperate to provide electrical shielding for the terminals in the connector. <IMAGE>
