A connector is provided with a pair of terminals configured to provide a differential signal pair. A ground terminal is positioned on opposing sides of the differential pair. The body of the differential pair is configured so as to bring the differential pair closer together. In an embodiment, the % coupling on the differential pair is increase at least 10% more than a design where the four terminals are positioned at a constant pitch between the tail and the contact.

A paddle card assembly is disclosed for use in providing a high speed transmission line for connecting electronic devices together. The paddle card takes the form of a circuit board that has two distinct portions, a base portion to which wires of a cable are terminated, and an extension portion that extends rearwardly toward the cable wire in order to extend between sets of wires. The extension portion has one or more ground plane layers formed therewith and supported thereby and as such, the extension portion places a ground plane in the termination area of the connector, rear of the trailing edge of the paddle card to provide shielding between pairs of wires on opposite sides of the paddle card where the cable shields are cut back. The extension portion may have either a reduced thickness, or wire-receiving channels formed therein which accommodate portions of the wires of the cable.

An electrical connector includes a dielectric housing with a plurality of filtering modules therein. Each filtering module has a housing and a magnetics assembly including transformer cores with wires wrapped therearound. An array of pins extend from the module housing for connection to the wires. A plurality of tails extend from the module housing for interconnection to a circuit board upon which the connector may be mounted. An interconnection is provided between the pins and tails that may include filtering or other signal modifying circuitry. A circuit member having an enhanced layout is also provided for use in or upon which the connector may be mounted.

A connector system includes a first housing, a second housing and a third housing. The first and second housings each include a wafer with signal terminals aligned in corresponding rows. The third housing mates to the first and second housings and supports a terminal array that connects the signal terminals in the first housings to the signal terminals in the second housing when the first and second wafer are arranged perpendicular to each other.

A connector is provided that includes a first housing that supports first terminal bricks. The first housing can mate with a second housing that supports second terminal bricks that are configured to mate with the first terminal bricks. The first housing and first terminal bricks can be adjusted so that a variety of spacing requirements can be meet by the combination of the first and second housings while allowing for reduced tooling investment.
