HUBER+SUHNER, a leader in connectivity solutions for electrical and optical applications, has added to its MFBX family of high performance, board to board RF connectors. The new addition is the low cost eMFBX connector which HUBER + SUHNER has designed to be intermateable with the original MFBX connector while using the latest production techniques to provide users with a board to board connector at an economical price.
According to HUBER+SUHNER, the new barrel design replaces the pure coaxial system with a planar inner conductor structure which has resulted in a very high quality and stable connector with very stable contact crowns and good contact resistance thanks to higher contact forces.
HUBER+SUHNER’s eMFBX connectors are designed for applications where medium axial and radial misalignment are required with board-to-board distances of between 16 mm and 22.3 mm and a ± 0.8 mm axial floating range.
Suitable for the frequency range DC to 6GHz, eMFBX connectors feature excellent shielding and an RF leakage figure of ≥ 65 dB across the frequency range. Return loss figures are 22dB from DC to 3.5GHz and 20dB from 3.5GHz to 5.0GHz – both with ± 0.8 mm axial floating range.
HUBER+SUHNER has made available a starter kit with two different board distances with both snap and slider SMD connectors.
