A terminal frame at least partially locatable within an insulative housing of an electrical connector and having: a plurality of contacts and bridges extending between adjacent contacts. An electrical connector formed from a plurality of modules, each module having: an insulative housing; a plurality of first contacts at least partially surrounded by said insulative housing; bridges extending between adjacent first contacts; a plurality of second contacts; and a substrate having conductive traces thereon extending between at least some of the first and second contacts. A method of making an electrical connector, including the steps of: providing a plurality of modules and arranging the modules. The module providing step comprises the steps of: providing a terminal frame with a plurality of first contacts and a bridge extending between adjacent first contacts; providing an insulative housing; at least partially surrounding the terminal frame with the insulative housing; providing a plurality of second contacts; providing a substrate with conductive traces thereon; connecting the first and second contacts to the conductive traces on the substrate.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
