1. An electrical connector comprising:
an insulative housing defining a mating port in a transverse direction, a top wall and a bottom wall horizontally extending
in two sides of the mating port, and a plurality of terminal passageways; and

a terminal module received in the insulative housing, the terminal module comprising an insulative plate extending along the
transverse direction and a plurality of conductive terminals, the conductive terminal having a fixed section insert molded
in the insulative plate and a deflectable contact section extending outside of the insulative plate from the fixed section
and received in a corresponding terminal passageway, the conductive terminals comprising a plurality of pairs of differential
signal terminals for transmitting differential signal;

wherein the insulative plate has a plurality of slots, the slot having two opposite edges, the fixed sections of the pair
of differential signal terminals having proximal inner edges, the inner edges being between two opposite edges of the slot;
and

wherein the slot extends from one side of the insulative plate in a vertical direction to expose a part of the fixed sections
of the pair of differential signal terminals.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY

FOXCONN INTERCONNECT TECH...

1. An electrical connector assembly comprising:
four connector units assemble with one another in a square manner and occupying four different quadrants, respectively;
each of said connector units defining a square configuration and including two neighboring sides interfaced with the corresponding
neighboring connector units, and

each of said connector units including an insulative housing with a plurality of contacts therein; wherein
each of said neighboring sides defines a vertically staggered structure with opposite upper parts and lower parts alternately
arranged with each other therealong so as to cooperate with the vertically and horizontally staggered structure of the neighboring
connector units to provide at least vertical retention between the neighboring connector units, and an inner interengaging
structure and an outer interengaging structure are located at two opposite ends of said vertically and horizontally staggered
structure so as to cooperate with the corresponding inner interengaging structure and outer interengaging structure to further
provide horizontal retention between the neighboring connector units; wherein

in each of said connector units, one of said inner interengaging structure and said outer interengaging structure is configured
with a round structure so as to function as a pivot during a rotational assembling between the neighboring connector units.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR HAVING IMPROVED CONTACTS

FOXCONN INTERCONNECT TECH...

1. An electrical connector comprising: an insulative housing; and a plurality of contacts being over molded in the insulative housing, each of the contacts comprising: a conductive member being fixedly molded to the insulative housing and comprising a base portion and a contact portion projected from the base portion and exposed out of the insulative housing for being electrically connected with a mating connector contact; and a connecting member electrically connected with the conductive member, the connecting member including a soldering portion soldered with the base portion, an elastic portion for connecting to a printed circuit board, and a connecting portion connected between the soldering portion and the elastic portion, the connecting member being separate from the insulative housing and is deflectable in the vertical direction.
