Fairview Microwave Inc. has launched a new product line made-up of 45 BMA connectors with VSWR as low as 1.2:1, and seven BMA adapters with VSWR as low as 1.15:1. Typical applications include blind mating, RF backplanes, rack and panel connectivity, high-speed switching and use in phased array systems.
Fairview’s new line of 54 BMA connectors and BMA adapters provide a maximum operating frequency of 22 GHz. They feature 50 Ohm impedance, gold-plated BeCu contacts and an operating temperature range of –65° to 125°C. Radial and axial float is offered in many of the models to help with alignment. Commercial versions are constructed of brass and military versions are made of stainless steel. Hermetic versions are also available. These BMA connectors and BMA adapters are ideally suited for telecommunications and military electronics applications.
“Our new BMA connectors and adapters make a great addition to our already extensive interconnect product line. As BMA interfaces are deployed globally, and have been for years, there is great need for these products across a wide variety of applications,” said Dan Birch, Product Manager.
