An electrical system comprises first and second substrates electrically connected by means of first and second connectors mounted on the substrates, respectively. Each first connector includes a cavity having an array of first terminals disposed therein. Each second connector includes a mating portion having second terminals received in the cavity when the first and second connectors are mated. Floatable means arranged at least on the first connector such that when the first (floatable) connector is mated to the corresponding second connector of the second substrate, the first (floatable) connector is moveable respect to the corresponding second connector to compensate any misalignment therebetween thereby ensuring an electrical connection between the first and second connectors.
