RF connectors for mmWave are shrinking to accommodate higher performance and higher densities in 5G communication networks and devices. This FAQ begins by looking at today’s 4.3-10 coaxial connectors, which were developed to solve the performance issues inherent to the previous 7-16 connectors. It then examines how the technologies unveiled in the 4.3-10 are further […]
A family of 1.35 mm board and cable connectors and cable assemblies from Samtec move mmWave signals.
Return loss can affect insertion loss, the amount of energy that reaches a receiver.
Amphenol RF is pleased to introduce the 2.92 mm connector interface into its robust portfolio of RF interconnect options. This connector series is engineered to offer low VSWR and excellent return and insertion loss, along with high power handling capabilities. 2.92 mm connectors, sometimes referred to as K connectors, have the ability to mate with […]

Connectors are essential components in radio frequency (RF) systems, especially in high-frequency applications like Gigahertz (GHz) 5G devices. Designers have a broad range of connectors to choose from, but there are a few key parameters to consider when narrowing down the choices. Six keys to selecting and integrating GHz connectors include physical size, frequency range […]
Amphenol RF is pleased to announce the expansion of the popular miniature-sized TNC interface with an additional reverse polarity (RP) configuration. This straight cable mount RP-TNC plug is designed for the popular LMR-240 low loss cable and is engineered to meet all IP67 specifications in the mated and unmated conditions. RP-TNC connectors are ideal for […]
Using one wire in two very different roles is widely done, requiring some simple circuity and basic components. It makes a lot of sense to use an individual single copper cable and its connection between two points to do more than it initially intended, especially if that additional function is aligned with the primary function […]
Amphenol RF is expanding its SMP product series with a new right‐angle cable plug designed for easier assembly and improved performance. SMP connectors are ideal for telecommunications and military applications which require compact, secure RF interconnect. This new commercial product utilizes the standard SMP interface and provides a high‐frequency solution that offers reliable performance up […]
