Title: Modular electrical connector with enhanced antielectromagnetic interference performance

Abstract: A modular electrical connector primarily used as an adapter in data communication between mainboard and peripheral devices of a personal computer (PC) comprising an insulated connector body and at least one connectors. Insulated connector body has a receiving space with first mating members each engaged with a second mating member of connector when connector and connector body are engaged. Also provided is a grounded member having holes on a side for allowing hollow cylindrical members of connector to be inserted through.
