Amphenol RF, Danbury, Conn., introduces its ultra-miniature AMMC printed circuit board connector, ideal for space-constrained RF applications with 50 Ohm impedance requirements. These connectors are fully compatible with the Hirose W.FL and IPEX MHF III series.
Amphenol Micro Miniature Coaxial (AMMC) connectors are low profile (1.4 mm off the board, mated) with an extremely small footprint (2 x 2 mm). Packaged in 3,000 piece reels, these connectors feature high frequency broadband performance up to 6 GHz and easy snap on/off mating. The AMMC connectors are designed to be surface mounted, which allows for higher PC board densities.
In addition to AMMC PCB connectors, Amphenol RF offers a full AMMC product portfolio which includes AMMC cable jumpers and AMMC to SMA coaxial adapters. The jumpers offer an AMMC right angle plug to AMMC right angle plug on industry standard black 0.81 and 1.13 mm micro-coaxial cable.
Furthermore, Amphenol RF has extended the AMC product line to include AMC jumpers with 0.81 mm micro-coaxial cable and RG-178 cable configurations. Similar to the AMMC, The AMC (Amphenol Micro Coaxial) connector series is a low profile (2.5 mm of the board, mated) series with an extremely small board footprint (3 x 3 mm).
The light weight, compact designs make AMMC and AMC interconnects optimal for wireless, WLAN, Bluetooth and GPS applications. They meet the high frequency transmission requirements of mobile phones, notebook computers and tablets. Due to their ability to maintain superior signal integrity, AMMC and AMC connectors are also popularly used for antenna connections and cellular communications.
