Claim of US Patent No. 11,071,201


1. An electrical component comprising:a substrate having an uppermost layer and a second layer disposed below the uppermost layer; and
an integrated circuit mounted to an uppermost surface of the uppermost layer, such that an electrical signal trace of the substrate is in electrical communication with the integrated circuit,
wherein an electrical signal conductor of an electrical cable is configured to be mounted to the uppermost surface of the uppermost layer so as to be placed in electrical communication with the integrated circuit along the electrical signal trace of the substrate, and an electrical ground of the electrical cable that is electrically insulated from the electrical signal conductor by an insulator and wherein the electrical ground is configured to be mounted to the second layer, and wherein the electrical signal conductor extends out from the insulator.
