Molex Introduces the Industry’s Only Vertical PCB Launch Configuration for the High-Speed Digital Testing Industry
“The Molex Precision 2.4 mm Compression-Mount Test Connectors are ideal in next-generation data- and tele- communication applications where design flexibility is critical,” said Roger Kauffman, marketing and sales manager, Molex. “Both the vertical profile and compression-mount feature allow customers to create test points virtually anywhere on the PCB so that they can maximize the space when designing today’s high-speed digital test boards.”
The compression-mount design uses two 0-80 UNF screws so that the receptacle can be mounted directly to the PCB. It also can accommodate a wide range of board thicknesses including 0.57 to 2.79 mm and provides a continuous ground connection between the connector and PCB. The connectors mate to 2.4 mm male (plug) connectors, which are available on the customer’s test equipment cable end. The integrated center pin design allows 1.2:1 VSWR at 50 GHz and provides low reflections for accurate measurements. Additionally, the stainless steel body can withstand over 500 mating cycles.
