  In the connector units 100 and 300, a large number of connection terminals of the connectors 110 to 112 are connected in parallel by printed wiring formed on the flexible boards 120 and 310. However, in the connector units 100 and 300, the connection relationship between the main connector 110 and the second sub-connector 112 by printed wiring is opposite to the left and right.

  Furthermore, in the said form, it illustrated that the 1st subconnector 111 and the 2nd subconnector 112 were arranged in the longitudinal direction of the connector unit 100. FIG. However, like the connector unit 320 illustrated in FIG. 9, the first sub-connector 111 and the second sub-connector 112 may be arranged in a direction orthogonal to the longitudinal direction.

  Moreover, in the said form, the connector unit 100 illustrated having the main connector 110, the 1st subconnector 111, and the 2nd subconnector 112. FIG. However, like the connector unit 330 illustrated in FIGS. 10 and 11, the third sub connector 113 may be provided.
