    • Available in a wide variety of Mil-Std-348 RF connector interfaces
    Smiths Connectors offers a complete series of high frequency low loss coaxial RF connector products with Type “N”, “TNC” & “SMA” & 2.4 mm interfaces. The low loss RF Coaxial Connector product offering includes High Frequency (DC – 18 GHz) standard RF connector interfaces for a series of low loss RF cables such as LL 120, LL 142, & LL 393 type cable series. This expands Smiths Connectors current RF product series of multi-pin low loss coaxial interconnects offered in a variety of formats and insert arrangement for Mil-Dtl-38999, ARINC 600, D-Sub and Micro-D connector format and fit a wide range of low-loss cables.

  •  
    • MDCX VSWR of 1.25:1 (typ) up to 10 GHz (max mated pair)
    • MDHC VSWR of 1.5:1 (typ) up to 40GHz (max mated pair)
    • Maximum overall diameter of 0.125" fitted into low-profile Micro-D housing
    • Constant 50 Ohm airline impedance
    Multipin coax connectors (MDCX) have low VSWR of 1.25:1 up to 10 GHz (max mated pair). Each spring loaded contact has a maximum diameter of 0.125" fitted into low profile metalized housing. Spring loaded High Frequency Micro-D Coax Connectors (MDHC) offer low VSWR up to 40 GHz (typ). These connectors have a constant 50 ohm airline impedance interface and are 30% smaller than our SCX coaxial connectors. Each coax contact has a maximum overall diameter of Ø.133" fitted into a low-profile metalized or plastic housing. MDHC coaxial contacts are a drop in alternative to Smiths Connectors MDCX RF contacts with increased frequency range from 10 GHz to 40 GHz. MDCX and MDHC coaxial contacts are compact in size allowing multiple high density connections in a Micro-D style shell for applications where space and weight savings are important. No cumbersome spring mounts are required. These connectors are also available with locking post mechanisms or blindmate hardware attachment.
    • Insert arrangements available in 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 way
    • mixed signal and power contacts available in hybrid arrangements
    • RoHS compliant
