Title: Electrical connector having first and second terminals

Abstract: A connector comprises signal terminals that extend in one direction, a conductive tubular shell that encloses at least the ends of the signal terminals, the axis of the shell being extending in a inserting direction to the opposing connector, and a ground terminal that turns over inwardly at a rear opening edge of the shell and projects so as to extend to the portion near the front opening edge of the inserting direction. When the connector is fitted to the opposing connector, the signal terminals and the ground terminal clip a projecting part of the opposing connector, whereby the signal terminals are electrically connected to the opposing signal terminals formed on the projecting part, and the ground terminal is electrically connected to the opposing ground terminal formed on the projecting part.
