Abstract An IC card has a top cover with a portion of molded polymer material that forms a cavity between its rear end and the rear of the circuit board upper face into which the plug can be inserted. The circuit board has traces on its upper face and the molded portion of the cover forms cam walls for depressing plug contacts against the traces. The lower cover has a polymer cover portion that supports the rear end of the circuit board and that forms a lead-in for guiding a plug into the cavity. The plug has contacts whose free forward end portions each includes a horizontal rear section and an inclined front section. Connector of the IC card takes up a minimum of space.
