An electrical connector called an RF coaxial connector, often known as a radio frequency connector, is made to operate at radio frequencies in the multiple megahertz range.
Coaxial cables and RF connectors are frequently used together, and the coaxial design’s shielding is maintained by the RF connectors.
To lessen signal reflection and power loss, better models also limit the change in transmission line impedance at the link.
Transmission line effects become more significant as frequency rises, with minor impedance differences from connectors causing the signal to reflect rather than flow through.
An RF connector must prevent capacitive pickup and electromagnetic interference from introducing outside signals into the circuit.
In terms of mechanics, RF connections can offer a fastening mechanism (thread, bayonet, bracing, blind mate) and springs for a low ohmic electric contact while preserving the gold surface, enabling very high mating cycles and lowering the insertion force.
Due to the large market demand for low-cost, high-data-rate wireless transceivers, radio-frequency (RF) circuit design has increased dramatically in the last decade.
Television receivers, two-way radios, some Wi-Fi accessories with detachable antennae, and radio frequency measurement equipment all employ common types of RF connectors.
The UHF-type connector was created in the early 30s when VHF/UHF technology was still in its infancy.
Many times, Amateur radio experimenters with engineering and other technical skills served as the forerunners of VHF. They started exploring and developing the VHF frontier.
Soon after, research on FM radio and television started, and this period gave rise to the connector known at the time as UHF.
The N connector, or Type N connector in its entirety, is a threaded, medium-sized, weatherproof RF connector used to link coaxial cables.
One of the first connectors to support microwave-frequency transmissions was this one.
Although standard Type N connectors can readily handle frequencies up to 11 GHz, the connector was initially intended to transfer communications at frequencies up to 1 GHz in military applications.
This has been increased to 18 GHz thanks to more recent precision improvements made to the design by Julius Botka of Hewlett Packard.
The Global RF Coaxial Connector Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Vertical launch connections from Withwave are made specifically for solderless vertical PCB launching on test and measurement boards in RF Coaxial Connector/microwave applications.
These connectors have favorable electrical transition performance up to 110 GHz and may be installed more quickly without the need for soldering.
The product line ranges from DC to 26,5 GHz (SMA), 40 GHz (2,92 mm), 50 GHz (2,4 mm), 67 GHz (1,85 mm), and 110 GHz, and is available in a number of kinds, including male and female (1,0 mm).
For the 1,85 mm type and the 1,0 mm type, the connectors have voltage standing wave ratios (VSWR) of less than 1,3 and less than 1,6, respectively.
