Cinch Connectivity Solutions, a Bel group company, has expanded the 2.92mm series with vertical launch, PCB compression mount connectors, that are supplied with and without a side groove. This type of connector is generally employed in test and measurement applications, semi-conductor testing fixtures, PC board characterisation, and networking applications.
The company’s 2.92mm connectors are designed to offer low return loss values for frequencies up to 40GHz. The side groove connector enables microstrip or grounded coplanar waveguide designs that are ideal for various board materials and thicknesses. Both are available in a two-hole flange mount, and the vertical launch design reduces footprint needs with no sacrifice in performance. The solderless design enables peak RF performance and can be easily mounted, removed and reused with little difficulty. These new vertical mount jacks are part of a growing offering of these products for 5G applications.
