A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11929568B2) discloses a solderless single pair Ethernet (SPE) connector system that includes a female connector portion with electrical contacts positioned within an insulative housing and an outer shield, along with a male connector portion with insulation displacement contacts and an outer shield secured to a second insulative housing. The system allows for easy assembly and disassembly, with press-fit pins extending from the insulative housing to provide a secure connection. The outer shields are designed to provide radio-frequency shielding to the electrical contacts, ensuring optimal performance.

Furthermore, the patent details a method for assembling the SPE connector system, involving aligning the female connector with a printed circuit board, connecting wires from an SPE cable to the male connector's insulation displacement contacts, and securing the female connector to the PCB. The innovative design of the connectors allows for a reliable electrical connection between the wires and the contacts, enhancing the overall efficiency and performance of the system. The use of press-fit pins and outer shields adds to the robustness and durability of the connector system, making it suitable for various applications requiring a solderless and efficient SPE connection.
