RS Components adds Samtec connector range for wireless telecommunications
Distributor RS Components has expanded its Samtec connector range, with the introduction of more than 190 additional devices, including RF and coaxial connectors that target use in wireless telecommunications applications.
Introductions include the high-speed and high-density Razor Beam self-mating systems, which are available in a variety of pitches and lead styles for increased flexibility, high-density micro connector systems, and a range of RF connector products including PCB headers, MMCX connectors and coaxial cable assemblies.
There is also the high-performance and rugged-contact GRF1-J and GRF1-P micro-miniature RF connectors and cable assemblies. These devices can handle signals of up to 5.31GHz/10.7Gbit/s at 152mm, says the company.
Other additions are the SMP cable-mount jacks and PCB-mount plugs, designed for space-limited applications that require high-frequency solutions. The devices feature a push-on snap-together coupling to provide secure and reliable connection, as well as offering gold-plated centre contacts and a PTFE insulator.
The IJ5C5 50-Ohm series of high-isolation RF cable assemblies use a 4.0mm-pitch IJ5C connector housed in black shielded thermoplastic housings and feature a positive latching system for secure connection. They consist of a high-performance 26 AWG shielded cable with a FEP outer jacket.
