HUBER+SUHNER has added to its MFBX family of high performance, board to board RF connectors. The new addition is the low cost eMFBX connector which HUBER + SUHNER has designed to be intermateable with the original MFBX connector while using the latest production techniques to provide users with a board to board connector at an economical price.
According to HUBER+SUHNER, the new barrel design replaces the pure coaxial system with a planar inner conductor structure which has resulted in a very high quality and stable connector with very stable contact crowns and good contact resistance thanks to higher contact forces.
HUBER+SUHNER’s eMFBX connectors are designed for applications where medium axial and radial misalignment are required with board-to-board distances of between 16 mm and 22.3 mm and a ± 0.8 mm axial floating range.
Suitable for the frequency range DC to 6GHz, eMFBX connectors feature excellent shielding and an RF leakage figure of ≥ 65 dB across the frequency range. Return loss figures are 22dB from DC to 3.5GHz and 20dB from 3.5GHz to 5.0GHz - both with ± 0.8 mm axial floating range.
HUBER+SUHNER has made available a starter kit with two different board distances with both snap and slider SMD connectors.
