High Frequency Coax Contacts (MHC)

Float Mount Design

High Frequency Coax Contacts offer exceptional RF performance up to 26.5 GHz for Size 8 and 40 GHz for Size 12 contacts in multi-pin connector applications. Engineered with a “float mount” design, these contacts ensure low VSWR at microwave frequencies by preventing air gaps at the mating interface. These contacts are designed to be terminated to .086 diameter flexible cables (RG-405 equivalent).

    Optical Interconnect Design Challenges in Space

    Aeronautical applications face many design challenges that are unique to their intended environment. The best practices for optical interconnect design for space applications include the use of radiation-resistant technology to defend against space radiation, the use of components and devices that are designed to operate in harsh environments, and meeting size, weight, and power (SWaP) and long-term reliability requirements. Finally, it is recommended to follow open standards like VPX and to look for solutions that comply with MIL and quality standards.
