Features & Benefits

  • MDHC VSWR of 1.5:1 (typ) up to 40GHz (max mated pair)
  • Maximum overall diameter of 0.125" fitted into low-profile Micro-D housing
  • Constant 50 Ohm airline impedance


Each coax contact has a maximum overall diameter of Ø.133" fitted into a low-profile metalized or plastic housing. MDHC coaxial contacts are a drop in alternative to Smiths Interconnect's MDCX RF contacts with increased frequency range from 10 GHz to 40 GHz. MDCX and MDHC coaxial contacts are compact in size allowing multiple high density connections in a Micro-D style shell for applications where space and weight savings are important. No cumbersome spring mounts are required. These connectors are also available with locking post mechanisms or blindmate hardware attachment.

    Raising the Bar of Burn-In Testing Sockets

    Burn-in testing is widely used as an aid in producing failure-free electronic components. When scientifically planned and conducted, burn-in-testing sockets offer one of the most effective methods of reliability screening at the component level. Testing during production plays a vital role in ensuring reliability and repeatability. Semiconductor manufacturing plants perform tests at each stage of production to eliminate defective parts as early as possible while precisely controlling each process parameter of the chip.
