Abstract

See full text

A high speed electrical connector is disclosed. The electrical connector includes a first set of a plurality of differential signal pairs arranged in a first linear array and a second set of a plurality differential signal pairs arranged in a second linear array adjacent to the first linear array. Further, the electrical connector is devoid of a ground contact between the first linear array of differential signal pairs and the second linear array of differential signal pairs.
