Extended frequency range increases for N type connectors
Amphenol RF has announced the expansion of the popular N Type connector product series. Newly enhanced panel mount and semi-rigid cable mount configurations are designed to reach an extended frequency range of 18 GHz, giving them a performance advantage over traditional N Type connectors which operate up to 11 GHz.
Their one-piece design, coupled with a special albaloy plating, make them an ideal interconnect solution for applications where low PIM requirements are needed.
These recently released N Type connectors offer greater design possibilities while featuring the familiar threaded coupling mechanism and robust, medium-sized interface engineers are accustomed to. The extended frequency range makes this connector a good fit for applications that require durability and increased data transfer rates. Additional features include low VSWR and insertion loss, high power handling and ruggedized construction.
These interconnects are fully interchangeable with N Type connectors made to the MIL-C-39012 specification. They are ideal for use in systems where reliable RF and mechanical performance is critical such as wireless infrastructure, military and industrial applications.
