Cryogenic connectors feature at RF and microwave show
Standard and custom RF connectors and adapters, cable assembly solutions and specialist cryogenic connectors will be showcased by Intelliconnect at the ARMMS RF and Microwave Society conference and exhibition being held at Wyboston Lakes, Bedfordshire (November 18-19).
Intelliconnect supplies many leading European and North American Defence, Medical and Marine OEMs as well as smaller companies and for bespoke projects. They are now active in the fast-growing Quantum Computing market and have established the CryoCoax range of low temperature connectivity solutions.
Also on display will be its recently extended its range of award-winning solderless, field-replaceable connectors which provide simple attachment to 0.047, 0.085” and 0.141” semi rigid cables.
This clamp connector series offers customers an alternative for assembling connectors to semi-rigid cable with no loss in performance or reliability.
The stainless-steel 2.9mm and SMA connectors have been designed for applications where reliability, durability, robustness and high-frequency performance are very important.
Typical applications include civil and military telecommunications, civil and military aeronautics, military equipment, space and measurement systems.
The Intelliconnect solderless connector range has many key features including field replaceable capability, guaranteed equivalent performance to solder connection, any no special tooling required.
Roy Philips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect (Europe), comments, “The wireless world is changing fast and while there is massive demand for product development it coincides with a real skill shortage in the UK for well-trained engineers. The Interlligent seminar is an opportunity increase awareness of the growing research and manufacturing opportunities in our industry to showcase our products to both delegates and the blue-chip speakers.”
The ARMMS RF and Microwave Society was formed in 1982 and is an independent professional society comprised of electronics engineers with an interest in high frequency (RF and Microwave) engineering.
A non-profit making organisation based in the UK their main activity is running two conferences each year with an associated exhibition.
Papers being presented at the 2019 conference include; 24GHZ FMCW radar with virtual antenna, an SMT packaged 4-channel mm-wave PA for 5g applications, artificial intelligence design of microwave antennas and millimetre-wave beamformer chips with smart-antennas for 5G.
