An ultra-low profile coaxial cable connector (i.e. plug) is provided that implements a lateral coupling of a coaxial cable inner conductor and center pin of a mating PCB-mounted coaxial receptacle. The overall height of a mating coaxial receptacle center pin is also reduced by way of a cutout in the receptacle ground ring as well as a cutout in a mating outer shell of the coaxial cable connector. The ultra-low profile coaxial cable connector achieves a reduction in mated height of less than 1.0 mm for both 1.13 mm diameter and 0.81 mm diameter coaxial cables. In both cases, the coaxial cable connector designs as discussed herein enable a further reduction in the total thickness of communication module boards to 1.25 mm, thereby meeting the high demands for thinner electronic device designs.
