Title: Shielded electrical connector

Abstract: An electrical connector comprises an insulative housing (1) having two side faces (100, 101) connected to a front face (104) and a rear face (102), a top face (103) connected to the side faces (100,101), the front face (103) and the rear face (102). The side faces (100,101) of the housing (1) each respectively defines a guiding channel (13,14) along a longitudinal direction thereof. The rear face (102) of the housing (1) has two ends respectively extending beyond the side faces (100,101) and each end defines a slot (17,18) therein communicating with the guiding channel (13,14) of the corresponding side face (100,101). A first metallic shielding (2) has a front face (202) and two side faces (200,201) connected to two ends of the front face (202), and two rear tabs (27,28) respectively extending from the side faces (200,201) for engaging within the slots (17,18) of the rear face (102) of the housing (1) when the front face (202) and the side faces (200,201) of the first metallic shielding (2) are in contact with the front face (104) and the side faces (100,101) of the housing (1). A second metallic shielding (3) has a top face (302) and two side faces (300,301) extending downward from the top face (302) for engagement between the side faces (200,201) of the first metallic shielding (2) and the side faces (100,101) of the housing (1), wherein the top face (302) of the second metallic shielding (3) covers the top face (103) of the housing (1).
