Samtec, a global manufacturer of a broad line of electronic interconnect solution blocks, including IC-to-Board/Ultra Micro, High Speed Board-to-Board, High Speed Cables, Future-Proof/Active Optics, and Micro/Rugged components and cables, has released its 1.35 mm family of products suitable for millimeter wave applications to 90 GHz. The 1.35 mm family includes compression mount board connectors (135 Series), cable connectors (PRF13 Series) and .047" low-loss flexible cable assemblies (RF047-A Series). 1.35 mm products are ideal for IEEE, E-band applications due to their high operating frequency and electrical precision.
Samtec’s 1.35 mm board connectors (135 Series) are the industry’s only vertical compression mount product using the 1.35 mm interface. The solderless launch allows for easy, field replaceable, cost-effective assembly to the board. Threaded coupling provides superior repeatability and mechanical stability. Microstrip and stripline options are available.
The RF047-A Series cable assembly, using 1.35 mm cable connectors, provides a frequency range of DC to 90 GHz and a maximum VSWR of 1.5:1. It also features a 5 mm minimum bend radius and insertion loss of 5 dB/ft at 90 GHz.
The Samtec PRF13 product is a series of solder clamp, straight plug or bulkhead jack 1.35 mm cable connectors that fit the industry standard .047" flexible cable.
Understanding that the interface between a high-frequency, air dielectric coaxial connector and a PCB is complex, Samtec offers technical support for board launch optimization and channel analysis. Simulation and physical test and measurement verification services are also available.
In addition to 1.35 mm products, Samtec offers a full line of off-the-shelf solutions suitable for microwave and millimeter wave applications from 18 GHz to 110 GHz. Samtec precision RF products support next generation technology advancements in wireless communication, automotive, radar, SATCOM, aerospace, defense, and test & measurement.
Samtec will be showcasing these 1.35 mm products the IMS 2022 event in Denver later this month. Click here to see everything RF's coverage of the event.
