Hello,
does a APC-7 connector exist, which I can solder on a PCB ? If so, where can I buy it ?

Hi
I purchased some APC-7 to N type adapters from a US supplier about 3 months ago. I will look up the email and get back to you with url data.
They advertize on eBay, so a search for APC-7 might turn them up.
QRX.

Hi
Check this source out.
I have purchased APC-7 to N transitions from them.
Delivery was quick and prices not too salty.

many people make apc7 adapters; for one, see sm electronics http://www.smelectronicsllc.com

apc7 to pcb is harder to find; maybe amphenol?

i'm curious, i've never seen a 7mm soldered to a pcb; why?

I guess because the purists who came up with the design for this high-precision coax connector would curl their toes at the idea of using them for anything worse than a -20dB reflection loss application like a transit to microstrip.
That suddenly makes me wonder: what is the best S11 that I might achieve for a coax to microstrip transition? Anyone?

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
