Precision connector with connections up to 90GHz
A precision connector series has been introduced by Rosenberger to meet the increasing demand for proper RF-connections up to 90GHz. The newly developed RPC-1.35 connector series, the ‘E connector’, is characterised by a highly robust mechanical design, minimum 3,000 mating cycles, high connector repeatability, maximum return loss values and is designed for high-performance RF measurements in the E-Band.
The product range covers semi-rigid and flexible cable assemblies, PCB connectors, test PCBs, cable connectors, in-series and inter-series adaptors, test port, floating and waveguide-to-coaxial adaptors as well as gauge and calibration kits.
A working group, consisting of PTB (Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt), Rosenberger, Rohde & Schwarz and Spinner, has designed the new 1.35mm connector to close the gap between 1.85 and 1.00mm connectors. The interface standardisation is in progress.
A new catalogue RPC-1.35 Connectors with detailed information is available cost-free.
