Amphenol RF has expanded its portfolio with new FAKRA to SMA cable assemblies intended for applications with increased flexibility requirements.
This assembly combines the automotive industry-standard FAKRA connector with the popular SMA connector created to accommodate applications including antennas, RFID and ADAS.
The newly released 50-Ohm assemblies utilise the snap-on FAKRA interface on one end and the threaded SMA interface at the other. FAKRA connectors provide a rugged, impact-resistant body with mechanically keyed and colour-coded housings that satisfy all automotive industry USCAR-17 standards. The SMA connector provides for easy connect and disconnect together with its compact size, which adds to the versatile use of this assembly from industrial to commercial applications.
The cable assemblies are available in several standard lengths on flexible RG-58 and RG-174 cables and provide reliable electrical performance up to 3GHz. They are excellent for existing and next-generation automotive applications that require connecting to external antennas including GPS, drones and 360-degree cameras.
