Electronic connectors of all types continue to shrink in size, including those designed for termination to coaxial cable. RF connectors are a special class of separable interfaces that are designed for applications that operate in 3KHz to 65GHz frequencies. They often feature tightly controlled impedance and use of exotic dielectric materials to minimize loss. The useable frequency range of a connector is inversely proportional to its size, allowing these smaller precision RF connectors to sport extended frequency ratings, a critical advantage in today’s emerging high-speed digital circuits. Ultra-miniature connectors feature the lowest profile and surface-mount PCB footprint, enabling them to offer exceptionally high bandwidth while consuming minimal space.
Check out this week’s product roundup for information about some of the latest and greatest miniature connector products. Designed to meet rugged requirements for aerospace and defense, test and measurement, oil and gas, marine, and commercial air applications, TE Connectivity’s two-row, nanominiature Nanonics connectors deliver ultra-compact, weight-saving solutions qualified to MIL-DTL-32139.
