Claim of US Patent No. 11,116,073


1. A connector-cable module, comprising:a multicore cable; and
a connector connected to one end of the multicore cable, wherein
the multicore cable includesa first signal line that transmits a first signal,
a second signal line that transmits a second signal, the first signal and the second signal forming a differential signal, and
a third signal line that transmits a third signal that is independent of the first signal and the second signal;

the connector includesa board,
a first pad provided on the board and connected to the first signal line,
a second pad provided on the board and connected to the second signal line, and
a third pad provided on the board and connected to the third signal line;

the connector is configured such that when a line passes through a first gravity center of the first pad and a second gravity center of the second pad, a foot of a perpendicular drawn from a third gravity center of the third pad to the line is located between the first gravity center and the second gravity center;
the first pad and the third pad are at such a distance from each other that crosstalk occurs between the first signal and the third signal; and
the second pad and the third pad are at such a distance from each other that crosstalk occurs between the second signal and the third signal.
