Achieving secure and reliable mating with micro-coax cable assemblies

06-12-2021 | Amphenol | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

Amphenol RF has expanded its cable assembly portfolio with further MCX and MMCX cable assemblies created on flexible 1.13mm micro‐coax cable. These 50-Ohm assemblies are offered in a mixture of plug and jack configurations that terminate to ultraminiature AMC and AMC4 connectors. The robust mechanical MCX design makes these assemblies excellent for more rugged applications with space constraints including drones and consumer devices. The smaller MMCX to AMC or AMC4 cable assemblies are utilised to make connections between PCBs and modules in tight spaces for IoT infrastructure.

MCX and MMCX connectors are built with brass bodies, while the AMC and AMC4 connectors feature gold or silver-plated phosphor bronze body. The assembly provides secure and reliable mating with the quick connect/disconnect snap‐on coupling mechanism.

These cable assemblies join a strong collection of MCX and MMCX connectors created to terminate various micro‐coax cable types. These product series are frequently mounted externally on a panel while the micro‐coax termination is routed simply within an enclosure to mate with the appropriate PCB or adapter interface. This option is ideal for external antennas with an MCX or MMCX plug interface.
