Amphenol RF expands cable assembly portfolio
Amphenol RF has expanded its cable assembly offerings with additional MCX and MMCX cable assemblies designed on flexible 1.13 mm micro‐coax cable. These 50 ohm assemblies are available in a variety of plug and jack configurations that terminate to ultraminiature AMC and AMC4 connectors.
The mechanical MCX design makes these assemblies ideal for more rugged applications with space constraints such as drones and consumer devices. The smaller MMCX to AMC or AMC4 cable assemblies are used to make connections between PCBs and modules in tight spaces for IoT infrastructure.
MCX and MMCX connectors are manufactured with brass bodies while the AMC and AMC4 connectors feature a gold or silver plated phosphor bronze body. The assembly offers secure and reliable mating with the quick connect/disconnect snap‐on coupling mechanism.
These cable assemblies join a robust collection of MCX and MMCX connectors that are designed to terminate to various micro‐coax cable types. These product series are often mounted externally on a panel while the micro‐coax termination is routed easily within an enclosure to mate with the appropriate PCB or adapter interface. This option is well suited for external antennas with an MCX or MMCX plug interface.
