MCX Microminiature Connector Specifications

 

MCX Microminiature Connector

RoHS Compliant Status: Active

MCX microminiature connectors provide repeatable performance from DC to 6 GHz. The design of these devices has taken into consideration the need for size reduction, low weight,durability and reliable performance. The MCX devices enable a 30% space reduction over similar SMB/SMC types.
The MCX is available for affixement to industry standard cable and as printed circuit board device. The "snap-on" connection feature between devices offer the user ease of assembly in dense packaging layouts.
Applications for the MCX are those where size , weight , performance and ease of assembly are the driving considerations to the final design decision. Typically, these include GPS, wireless communications ( WLAN and mobile) and automotive.
