The specification discloses an interconnected multiple circuit module (10) including a connector assembly (14) for interconnecting two circuit modules (12) each having at least one circuit board assembly (16). The connector assembly (14) includes pins (26) extending through the circuit board assemblies (16) and a free connector block (28) for receiving the pins in opposite ends. The pins (26), connector block (28) and contacts (40) within the block are preferably adapted to provide differential mechanical resistances on opposite ends of the block between the pins to facilitate controlled predictable electrical connection of the circuit modules (12).
