RF coax cable connectors transmit analog signals while minimizing RF (radio frequency) signal losses. These devices are designed to work at the multi-megahertz range of radio frequency. An RF connector is commonly used with a coaxial cable due to the shielding that the coaxial cable provides. A coaxial cable connector has an inner conductor that is enveloped by a concentric conducting sleeve, with the conductor and shield separated by an insulating material.
Our RF coax cable connectors are engineered and are available in small sizes, with tight tolerance electrical characteristics, and in materials that are rugged but not heavy and manufactured to withstand high use in harsh environments. These connectors are manufactured with crimp, solder, and clamp terminations to enable easy installation.
Our portfolio of RF coax connectors includes MIL-standard connectors qualified for M39012, M55339, M83517. These connectors are used in television receivers, communications, Wi-Fi devices, avionics, launch vehicles, radar arrays, satellite communications, and industrial or scientific measurement instruments that use RF.

How RF Coax Connectors Function in Electronics
In avionics and ground-based radar systems, our miniature coax connectors enable smaller, lighter configurations in systems to control and manage communications and in on-board computers for navigation and power management. In telematics and global positioning systems, our FAKRA RF compliant connector system helps enable high-frequency signal transmissions. In automotive infotainment systems, our stripline RF connectors and contacts offer a low-cost solution with complex crimping for high-frequency mobile communications, including Wi-Fi and mobile television. With our RF coax connectors, you gain a rugged solution for densely packaged RF interconnect systems that allow control of the mating forces. In Internet of Things (IoT) technology, our micro-coaxial connectors – SMA and BNC – provide a low-profile design with reliable performance and competitive pricing. In testing and measurement equipment, our precision millimeter wave (“mmWave”) connectors (2.92mm, 2.40mm, 1.85mm, 1.00mm) provide very low voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) and insertion loss to help improve accuracy and stability.
