Taiwan Aliner Industries Inc. has developed a new 6 GHz ultra-miniature coaxial connector line for wireless mobile devices that can be used to enhance the quality of radio transmissions. These MCII connectors can work as an internal data connector, or as an external antenna connector where the RF signal is weak.
The ultra-miniature MCII connectors can replace bulkier traditional connectors such as Type N, RP TNC, or RP SMA that are often used as external antenna connectors. The MCII receptacle connectors with PC-board/edge mount offer a minimal board height of 2.10 mm, and measure 3.10 (L) x 3.70 mm (W). The mating antenna connector measures 7.0 mm in length.
The 50-ohm connectors deliver a VSWR of less than 1.35 up to 6 GHz with an insertion loss of -0.28 db, and feature a snap-on coupling interface. The operating life is greater than 500 mating cycles. The devices are compliant to RoHS requirements.
Sample pricing starts at $1.11, depending on volume. Delivery is two weeks.
