PCB connectors by Samtec suit microwave applications
Able to reach up to 65GHz compression mount PCB connectors are able to reach up to 65GHz for microwave applications.
The solderless vertical connector allows engineers to replace components in the field for cost-effective assembly to the board, said Samtec. Connector interfaces include 1.85mm (65GHz), 2.40mm (50GHz) and 2.92mm (40GHz). Microstrip and stripline options are available.
The PCB connectors have threaded coupling which is claimed to provide “superior repeatability” with high mechanical stability. Samtec also offers mating cable assemblies and announced that 1.35mm (90GHz) connectors will be introduced soon.
Samtec was founded in 1976. The company manufactures a broad line of electronic interconnect solutions, including high-speed board-to-board, high-speed cables, mid-board and panel optics, precision RF, two-piece board-to-board, and micro or rugged components and cables.
Samtec Technology Centers are dedicated to developing and advancing technologies, strategies and products to optimise performance and cost of a system from the bare die to an interface 100m away, and all interconnect points in between.
Samtec has over 40 international locations, with products sold in more than 125 different countries.
