Title: Electrical connector

Abstract: A plug connector 10 includes a central grounding plate 13, which is provided between two lateral rows of signal plug contacts 12a. In these rows, grounding plug contacts 12b are positioned to partition the signal plug contacts 12a and to establish electrical contact with the central grounding plate 13. A receptacle connector 30 includes a pair of lateral grounding plates 33, which are positioned outside two lateral rows of signal receptacle contacts 32a. Grounding receptacle contacts 32b are provided at locations which correspond with the locations of the grounding plug contacts 12b and are in electrical connection to the lateral grounding plates 33. This electrical connector assembly has a relatively small number of parts yet prevents crosstalk and reflection of signals effectively.
