Title: ROTATABLE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR
Abstract:
A connecting system for an electronic device is disclosed herein. The connecting system may comprise a connector port including an alignment feature and two or more conductive traces corresponding to contacts of a dock interface. The connector port may be rotatable relative to the dock interface with at least two conductive traces arranged in a manner such that the contacts are maintained in contacting relation with the conductive traces along a contact path when the electronic device is rotated relative to the dock interface. The connector port may further include one or more nonconductive separating spaces that separate the at least two conductive traces along the contact path. The connecting system may comprise a rotation stop arranged such that the contacts are prevented from having contacting relation with conductive traces other than a conductive trace to which the contact corresponds and with which the contact is aligned.
