Greetings: There is so much good stuff on RF Cafe that there is no way to list or link to all of it here. Please use the Search box or the Site Map to find what you want - there is a good chance I have it. Thanks!


Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I was wondering if anyone has any information on this question.

I need the smallest connector available for RF. It will be a board-to-board connection and the specs are below:

DC - 3 GHz
positive retention (SMA has a screw to retain the connection)

Any information will help.

Is this a case where the two PCBs mate to each other through a connector rather than use a cable?

Do you want a screw connection, or a push-on?

Board to Board connector use Coaxial? I have no seen that. Maybe some Board to Board series such JAE's (A Japanese Co.) products will satisfy your requirement.

once upon a time Sealectro made a slide-in slide out-out miniature coaxial connector with berylium copper finger-stock. Not sure if it went up to 3GHz, but for sure up to 1Ghz min. Anyways, maybe H&S regs killed it off due to hazardous material restrictions.

At bottom, life is all about

You could try looking for the RF Connectors you need on everything RF

There are thousands of connectors listed from multiple manufacturers, and you an narrow down by specification.
