September saw the start of the pilot phase of a public gigabit Wi-Fi access point on the famous Fan Mile in Berlin, Germany. HUBER+SUHNER is providing Wi-Fi antennas and coaxial cables, thus playing its part in enabling users in the area to surf, chat and stream for free for 30 minutes.
At the the premier conference for chip, board and systems design engineers in the high speed communications and semiconductor communities HUBER+SUHNER will present its newest additions to the well-know connectivity portfolio.
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 snap-on connector family MMPX is the most ideal coaxial-to-PCB system solution for operating frequencies up to 65 GHz (80 GHz) and data rates up to 80 Gbps. The comprehensive product range consists of cable connectors and assemblies, PCB connectors and adapters to open standards. MMPX connectors feature excellent electrical performance at smallest mechanical dimensions. The broadband characteristics, the small size and the outstanding performance permit new solutions for applications in numerous markets such as high speed digital testing and radio frequency testing (60 GHz WPAN), industrial, mobile communication, space and defense.
MMPX (80 GHZ solution with PC1.0, Microbend 1R and Boaflex 110 Ghz)
HUBER+SUHNER MMCX connectors are intended for use in applications where the smallest dimensions have to be achieved. These connectors can be used in applications from DC to 6 GHz. The reliable "snap-on" coupling mechanism ensures that the electrical parameters are consistently reproduced. Due to its non-slotted outer contact, the MMCX series provides a low RF leakage. In addition, HUBER+SUHNER SMT MMCX connectors fully meet today’s SMT (Surface Mount Technology) requirements with superior design, material selection and packaging. HUBER+SUHNER SMT connectors are suitable to all reflow-soldered SMT-PCBs where impedance matching or screened signal transmission is necessary.
HUBER+SUHNER SMP connectors provide a robust, proven and fully compatible plug-in solution for applications up to 40 GHz. SMP connectors have been MIL-SPEC qualified for defense and space flight hardware. The design of the interface and treatment of materials provide true compatibility as well as guaranteed mechanical performance over the mating life of the connector with all MIL-STD-348 SMP connectors in the market.
HUBER+SUHNER SMPM connectors offer unrivalled miniaturisation and performance for RF applications up to 65 GHz. SMPM connectors are MIL-SPEC qualified for defense and space flight applications. Along with the unique bend-to-the-end Microbend style cable connectors, HUBER+SUHNER offers a large portfolio of different PCB mount SMPM connectors that have been designed with optimised PCB trace launch geometries to offer a complete interconnect design solution from "wire-to-trace".
SMPM-T is the smallest threaded open source connector on the market. Its unique and innovative combination of a MIL-STD-348 SMPM female interface connector together with a retractable threaded nut provides an integrated solution offering unprecedented electrical and mechanical performance. The SMPM-T handles high density requirements with a connector centreline-to-centreline spacing of just 5 mm (0.20 in) while offering unmatched electrical stability at frequencies up to 67 GHz in even the harshest operating environments.
