Mouser has launched a new content stream in collaboration with Molex, examining RF connectors' capabilities, challenges, and transformative potential. The content stream features more than a dozen in-depth resources on RF technology, including podcast episodes, blog posts, white papers, and product guides. Every piece of content links directly to product information from the companies, connecting device manufacturers to the tools they require for design applications.

The new RF connectors content stream from the companies features 'The Power of Smart Agriculture & the Role of RF Technology', a new podcast episode placing technological advancements in agriculture's important role in society. The episode delivers a conversation between Darren Schauer, product manager of RF and Microwave Products at Molex, and David Pike, content director at Connector Geek. The two subject matter experts explain the potential applications of RF connectors in smart agriculture, including the dramatic growth of information and data via connected machinery and sensors.

'Cracking the Rural Access Nut: Is 5G the Answer?', a blog post from Molex senior director of Product Management and Marketing, Roger Kaufmann, describes how 5G radio frequencies can obtain reliable connectivity to hitherto unserved rural areas. The blog post links to 5G technologies from Molex, including RF flex-to-board connectors, Ethernet transceivers, and cellular external antennas. The new content stream also comprises a Smart AG White Paper, which analyses the latest applications in smart agriculture and the technological advancements making them possible. The white paper explores various relevant topics, including precision agriculture, vision and sensor technology, and smart greenhouse applications.
