The MXP50 Series from Huber+Suhner are multi-coax cable assemblies for coaxial-to-PCB Transitions up to 50 GHz. These assemblies are available in 1x8 and 2x8 Configurations with highly flexible and stable cables. They have standard phase matching of +/- 2 ps and are available with MXP to 2.4 mm and MXP to MXP connection interfaces.
The connectors have a dense 4 mm (0.157 inch) pitch centre-to-centre that enables them to take up less space on PCB boards and ensures good signal integrity at high data rates. The compact design of the PCB connector also allows it to be positioned directly adjacent to the DUT/chip to keep the transmission lines on the board short and the losses low. It uses a slide-on mounting system that allows assemblies to be unplugged and replugged quickly and easily while providing stable performance even after multiple mating cycles. This is a broadband solution that is designed for high-level testing applications and offers reduced cost of ownership compared to single interfaces, owing to lower outlay for PCB population and channel handling.
2x8 MPX to MXP board-to-board adapters are also available in this series.
