Mouser stocks a wide variety of 5G-capable interconnect solutions from Molex. 5G cellular communications are expected to transform wireless connectivity and the IoT through more data, better reliability, and broader connectivity. The company's complete connectivity solution portfolio, incorporating optical, copper and RF connectivity; FPGA solutions; and signal integrity engineering, allow capabilities that cover the way for 5G and beyond.

The Molex Mirror Mezz high-speed mezzanine system is a footprint-compatible, hermaphroditic connector solution allowing data rates up to 56Gbps per differential pair. The connectors’ stackable mating functionality reduces application costs and aids in simplifying design.

The company's 2.2-5 RF connector system produces high frequency and low PIM in a form factor that is 53% smaller than the 4.3-10 connector system, making it perfect for compact mobile radio applications.

The company's QSFP and QSFP-DD interconnect systems are excellent for high-density applications. QSFP connectors provide four lanes with data rates that scale up to 10Gbps. The double-density QSFP-DD system provides an eight-lane electrical interface that transmits up to 28Gbps NRZ or 56Gbps PAM-4, up to 200Gbps or 400Gbps aggregate.

LumaLink Optical Trace cable assemblies are created to illuminate the whole cable from end to end, making cable mapping simpler. These cable assemblies use high-density MPO connectors in a small form factor.

The company's 206994-series flexible antenna is a highly compact, side-fed monopole 2.4GHz and 5GHz antenna that measures only 15mm x 6mm. The antenna provides high RF performance for demanding and space-constrained applications, giving over 70% radiation efficiency and return loss of less than minus 10dB, making it perfect for applications that require gain values of at least 3.6dBi.
