An electrical connector (50) includes a molded plastic housing (52) including circuit paths (74,78,82) plated or coated on its surface and extending from rows of cavities (68) to another region to define one or more rows of contact pads (90,92,93,94) to be bonded and electrically joined to pads (36) of a daughter board (20) through a conductive material. The connector (50) is mountable to a daughter card (20) by mechanical fastening to establish electrical connections therewith without solder, by using conductive tape or conductive elastomeric material. A compliant spring end portion (44) of a contact (42) is inserted in each cavity (68) so that a pin contact section thereof extends outwardly from a mating face to mate with a socket contact of a connector (18) mounted on a mother board (12), and is electrically connected to contact pads (90,92,93,94) without solder.
