Title: Angled coaxial connector module

Abstract: An angled coaxial connector module for being mounted to a circuit board is disclosed. The connector module has a housing with a contact side for mating with a corresponding connector and a connecting side for mounting the connector module to the circuit board. The housing is constructed of an electrically insulating material. At least one electrical contact element extends through the housing between the contact side and the connecting side. The contact element has an electrically conductive inner center contact, an electrically conductive outer shielding tube surrounding the inner center contact at least within the housing, and an insulating member surrounding the inner center contact at least within the housing and electrically isolating the inner center contact and the outer shielding tube. The inner center contact and the outer shielding tube each have a corresponding bent portion within the housing such that the contact side of the housing is at an angle with respect to the connecting side of the housing.
