We work closely with the industry’s leading innovators to forecast opportunities to offer just-in-time product innovations to keep pace with the expanding capabilities of modern RF technology. When pushing the limits of next-generation bandwidth and high-capacity, high-density systems is mission critical, HUBER+SUHNER Astrolab has the proven capability to meet all of your high-speed digital interconnect needs within the industry’s most challenging operating environments.
Multi-Coax and Ganged Solutions
As satellite communication companies compete to provide greater capacity and bandwidth, the computing power required is transforming the architecture of on-board systems. The growing trend is to create scalable and reconfigurable systems that can meet future needs at the time of launch. HUBER+SUHNER is making this possible by providing flexible, lightweight cable assemblies and custom high-density ganged connectors for both chassis-level and PCB interconnections. Just as modern on-board satellite communication system hardware requires innovative, outside-the-box engineering, so too do the interconnect solutions that keep these systems running in the harsh environments of space. HUBER+SUHNER continues to build upon decades of spaceflight heritage by developing innovative RF connectivity solutions for industry leaders like MDA, Thales Alenia Space, and Orbital ATK.
Sub-miniature and Micro-miniature Connectors
HUBER+SUHNER offers an extensive array of compact and lightweight MIL qualified connectors that are ideal for applications where space is critical. The unrivaled quality and performance of our suite of high-density connector solutions operating up to 65 GHz are available as board-to-board, board-to-panel, and cabled solutions utilizing the patented space-saving minibend product line. HUBER+SUHNER also offers a complete line of products featuring the original SMPM-T interface, the smallest threaded interface available on the market, with minimal centerline-to-centerline distances and high-frequency operation up to 65 GHz. The SMPM-T interface offers an unparalleled combination of miniaturization capability and phase stability in high-vibration, high-density environments.
HUBER+SUHNER connector series SMPM, SMPM-T, SMP, MMCX and MMPX are mainly used for connections to a PCB. The different connector series offer a wide range of products suitable for various applications.
The minibend series is a truly flexible, 100% tested, preassembled coaxial cable assembly line that is designed for use in low profile internal point-to-point interconnections between RF modules within communications systems. The patented solder-less cable junction allows bending of the cable immediately behind the connector, which eliminates the need for expensive, heavy, and performance-limiting right angle connectors.
