Fairview Microwave Intros Low-PIM Mini-DIN 4.1/9.5 Adapters
March 10, 2014
Fairview Microwave Inc. has introduced
mini-DIN 4.1/9.5 adapters for applications requiring low passive intermodulation (low PIM)
performance such as cell sites or indoor/outdoor distributed antenna systems (DAS). Other applications
of these adapters include land-mobile radio (LMR) communications, telecom installations, wireless
infrastructure, portable sweep testing, OEM in-rack RF routing, and in-building systems. Mini-DIN
adapters are similar to 7/16 DIN connectors, but are smaller with more precise electrical performance.
Fairview Microwave's 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN adapters offer voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) performance
of 1.25:1 to 6 GHz. Third-order PIM is guaranteed to be less than -160 dBc using 2
tones at 20 watts.
These low PIM mini-DIN adapters are available in male and female
combinations of between-series interfaces for each adapter type including 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN to
7/16 DIN and 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN to Type-N. Two non-low PIM versions also are available. 4.1/9.5
adapters have tri-alloy plated brass bodies and silver plated beryllium copper (BeCu) center
contacts, allowing low IMD and low attenuation.

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