Abstract

One part of an electrical connector assembly has an insulating block and metal contacts that are mounted in the block, as is conventional. At one end the contacts are conventionally shaped to make an electrical connection to the other part of the connector assembly, and at the other end they are adapted to provide an improved connection to a new printed circuit card. The printed circuit card is mounted inside the insulating block and provides a conventional electrical connection between the contacts on one side and the conductors of a flat cable on the other side.
