Post subject: Stacking RF boards - connector choice ?
Unread postPosted: Thu Aug 26, 2004 10:34 am

Hi Cafe visitors,

I would like to have an RF module plugged into a mainboard with some coax connectors F<= 2GHz. What do you think is the best choice (best=cheapest.....).

I am thinking along the lines of MCX or MMCX, or even the new MMBX.
I think MCX is still the cheapest.

Any ideas ?

Best regards,

Peter Andersen

I concur with your decision. Those connectors have been fielded successfully in millions of products. Just be sure to choose a vendor that can supply the quality that your application requires. Not all connectors are created equal.

I used some SMB style connectors from
telegartner a few years back. They were nice
and had a swivel that made registration a breeze.
In quantity, they weren't too bad on the price, about a buck.

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. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
