In order to achieve very low electrical noise in high density connector systems needed in high performance computers, the connector system must have matched impedance along its entire length. A connector system that contains a bifurcated contact usually does not contain that quality. This can be done if the connector is made from a laminated structure containing the signal and ground conductors separated by an insulator of the proper thickness to achieve the desired impedance.
