Ardent Concepts Aims to Eliminate SMT Connectors with QUICKLINK Coaxial Connector

Ardent Concepts, Inc. looks to upend the status quo by introducing a twist-to-lock compression mount connector that replaces cumbersome surface mount connectors that require a receptacle on the PCB. Ardent’s patented QUICKLINKTM Connector mounts directly to the PCB with a twist-to-lock footprint design that requires only two small thru holes and a gold pad for the connector to land on. QUICKLINK footprints can be placed anywhere on your board to allow easy access to any channels from your device without having to solder on costly SMA or SMP surface mount receptacles.
