I-PEX Connectors is introducing three small form factor connectors designed to enable 5G mmWave applications.
NOVASTACK® 35-HDN Board-to-Board Connector
The NOVASTACK 35-HDN connector is designed for 5G mmWave and sub-6 applications (i.e. mobile phones, hotspots, AR/VR devices, etc.). Designed for high-frequency applications, this board-to-board form factor is also suitable for high-speed data rate applications, making it well suited for Thunderbolt 3 (20+ Gbps) solutions. The narrow design of this connector (0.35 mm pitch, 0.7 mm height) saves 53% of PCB space compared to existing shielded board-to-board connectors. It is fully shielded, increasing EMC performance by reducing EMI overall.
MHF® 7S Micro RF Coaxial Connector
The MHF 7S connector is designed to solve EMI issues caused by 5G mmWave transmissions. The connector has EMI performance in a small form factor (2.0 x 2.0 mm footprint). With a 1.50 VSWR max at 15 GHz, the MHF 7S solves 5G problems now. This connector is best for fixed wireless access, notebook PCs, small cell applications, and any application where improved electrical performance is required.
MHF® 7 Micro RF Coaxial Connector
The MHF 7 connector transmits millimeter wave 5G frequencies up to 45 GHz. The performance comes packaged in 2.0 x 2.1 mm footprint. With a 1.68 VSWR max at 45 GHz, the MHF 7 solves millimeter wave 5G problems. This connector is best for fixed wireless access, notebook PCs, small cell applications, and any millimeter wave application up to 45 GHz.
