Raydiall deal broadens Mouser RF interconnection options

Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with Raydiall Automotive, a designer, developer and manufacturer of automotive RF interconnection systems.

Through the new agreement, Mouser broadens its interconnect portfolio to offer a range of Raydiall's USCAR-qualified FAKRA and automotive high-speed data connectors.

Raydiall FAKRA cable connectors now available from Mouser include R3C straight and R3C 90° connectors in turnable housing versions, compatible with RG316, RG174, RTK, RG58, and RG59, RG59 mini, 1.5 DS cables.

The stamped and rolled cable connectors are automation friendly with an interface-positioning-guaranteed design, which can prevent pin stubbing or petal opening issues. Raydiall FAKRA connectors feature a patented one-step crimping terminal that offers a multipoint crimping stage in a single operation, which enables a significantly faster and more reliable process while reducing wire installation time.

Raydiall FAKRA PCB connectors are available in 90° and 180° variants.

The FAKRA PCB 90° connectors offer nose orientations in the 3-, 6-, 9-, or 12-o'clock position. The connectors support frequencies up to 4 GHz, with 50-ohm impedance and a 1000 megaohm minimum insulation resistance. Raydiall FAKRA PCB 180° connectors are lightweight, RoHS-compliant connectors that support frequencies up to 3 GHz with a 50-ohm impedance. Both the 90° and 180° variants are built with stamped and rolled technology and comply with pick-and-place processes.

The HSD PCB 90° connectors with 100-ohm impedance and 100V voltage rating feature kinked pins to prevent tilting of the connectors during the assembly onto the PCB. Raydiall FAKRA and HSD headers are compliant with lead-free reflow soldering (and in some cases with wave soldering).
