Easier access to wide range of high-performance connectors
Connectors, Switches & EMECH
Astute Electronics has signed a stocking franchise distribution agreement
with I-PEX, a Dai-ichi Seiko company that designs and manufactures small
form factor precision connectors for high speed and high frequency
applications. The product range includes micro RF and coax connectors, board
to board, board to wire, FPC/FFC and docking connectors.
Gary Evans, e-mech divisional manager, Astute Electronics, said: “The I-PEX
connector range offers excellent performance in a small package. The
franchise is an excellent addition to our growing portfolio of
electromechanical products and means that we can offer design engineers real
choice and innovative technology.”
Key products include:
1 - MHF series micro RF coax connectors designed for wireless LAN antenna
applications including IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n, WiMAX, Zigbee, Bluetooth, MIMO,
WiGig and M2 (MHF 4L). These devices have a very low mated profile of
1.2-2.5mm and suit coax cable diameters of 0.64 to 1.8mm. The use of the
company’s i-Fit technology enables simple, solderless termination.
2 - Novastack board to board connectors are available on a 0.35 or 0.4mm
pitch with 10-56 pins. The 35-HDP version is shielded and has four 2.2 A
power contacts. Data transfer rate is high at 10Gpbs.
3 - Cabline micro coax connectors are available in a wide range of
configurations and pin pitches from as small as 0.25mm. Mated profile is
very low, and horizontal, vertical and right angle types are available.
i-Fit technology ensures simple, solderless termination.
