Title: Electrical connector assembly and method for making the same

Abstract: An electrical connector includes a dielectric housing, first and second contacts for electrically engaging with a mated electrical connector, third and fourth contacts for electrically engaging with an electrical device. A printed circuit board is received in the housing. The first and third contacts and the second and fourth contacts are electrically connected together via circuits of the printed circuit board, respectively. These contacts are soldered to the printed circuit board, wherein the first and third contacts are on a first face of the printed circuit board and the second and fourth contacts are on an opposite face thereof. The first and second contacts each further have a barb having an interference fit with the housing. The printed circuit board has a copper stripline disposed between the first and second faces, whereby crosstalk of signals transmitted between the first and third contacts and between the second and fourth contacts can be prevented.
