AbstractA selectable compatibility electrical connector assembly has a high performance plug for mating with the jack to form a high performance electrical connection or to provide switching among various circuit elements to change the transmission characteristics of the assembly. The jack is adapted to receive low performance plugs and has a plug stop therein for limiting the depth of insertion of the low performance plug into the jack. The plug of the invention has an elongated notch in its front end which is designed to clear the plug stop for insertion of the plug to a depth greater than that of the low performance plug. The jack has first and second longitudinally offset latching stubs for latching both the low performance and the high performance plug at their proper insertion depth. An embodiment of the jack has a reciprocating switch assembly adapted to be actuated by the high performance plug when inserted to its proper depth in the jack.
