Abstract

See full text

The present invention discloses a coupling terminal structure and electrical connector using the same. The coupling terminal structure comprises: at least a pair of first terminal and second terminal, wherein the first terminal includes a first contact portion, a first neck portion and a first extension portion, the second terminal includes a second contact portion, a second neck portion and a second extension portion. The first contact portion is disposed aside to the second contact portion at a first distance, while the first extension portion is disposed aside to the second extension portion at a second distance. The first distance is greater than the second distance, thereby forming an electromagnetic coupling effect between the first extension portion and the second extension portion to provide better shielding and decrease interference between and within terminals.
