Abstract

See full text

Methods and apparatus are disclosed for manufacturing and for providing electrical connectors having maximum shielding from electronic interference. Maximum shielding is inexpensively achieved by manufacturing a shield structure from a single piece of material in a manner yielding individual channels for shielding a contact terminal from the receptacle area to the tail area. Contact terminals are integrated into the shield structure via insertion molding to form a column connector module. A plurality of column connector modules are then inserted into an appropriately formed front housing. As described by the method of this invention, shielding from electronic interference occurs not only between adjacent terminals within a column structure, but also, between terminals contained in adjacent column connector modules.
