Ardent Concepts, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of high performance GHz connectors used in the development of next generation semiconductor applications has released a new design of its 20, 40, & 70 GHz Straight Mount TR Multicoax series connector. With the added convenience of thumb screws for quicker installation and removal of the connector, this new configuration of the TR Multicoax series will drastically reduce test time while improving user experience by eliminating the need for any tools. Users of the new design can expect the same electrical performance that originally vaulted TR to a premiere multicoax solution for characterization of ICs, but now in a form factor that is as simple to install as a common RS232 connector. With exceptionally low loss, our newest TR Multicoax ensures quicker, more accurate, and more repeatable connector performance at an even faster pace than before.

Founder and CTO, Gordon Vinther, had this to say about the new design, “Ardent has provided industry-leading signal integrity to its customers for over 15 years, and it only makes sense that the fastest multicoax solution should also be fast and easy to install.”

The TR Multicoax series features 20/40/70 GHz connectors for customers with wide ranging bandwidth needs. As a solderless compression mount solution, TR Multicoax offers quick, repeatable connector performance in any application and across programs. Our small footprint means engineers don’t have to be constrained by the size of their boards or limited in the channels they can access. TR Multicoax series provides engineers with industry leading performance and reliability in markets such as IC development, communications systems, and even quantum computing.
