Abstract

See full text

A card connector provides for reliable grounding and, at the same time, makes it possible to simplify the mounting, maintenance and servicing operations. Card connector (10) comprises a main body (11) including a dielectric housing (13) accommodating multiple electrical contacts (12) and a grounding member (14) that is fabricated separately from the main body (11) and is secured thereto. The grounding member (14) has tabs (17) that electrically connect with an outer surface of a card inserted in the card connector (10) and connecting sections (16), the purpose of which is to electrically connect with electrical circuitry of a circuit board. The grounding member (14) can be latchably attached to the main body (11) that is mounted to the circuit board (100), and if necessary, it can be removed, thus providing access to connecting sections (12a) of electrical contacts (12).
