Title: Electrical connector for connecting to cables

Abstract: An electrical connector includes an insulative housing, a contact module inserted into the insulative housing and a number of cables connected to the contact module. The contact module includes an insulative block and a number of contacts fixed in the insulative block through insert molding. The contacts includes a number of cantilevered contacting portions extending beyond the insulative block and a number of soldering pads. The cantilevered contacting portions of adjacent contacts overlap each other from a side view, while the soldering pads of the adjacent contacts are offset from each other and exposed on upper and lower surfaces of the insulative block, respectively, from the side view. As a result, the contact module can be easily assembled to the insulative housing.
