How to Specify Coaxial Blind-Mate Connectors

In RF and microwave applications, blind-mate connections can be challenging because to maintain a constant and uniform signal between circuit boards or modules, you need specially designed blind-mate connectors. Pasternack’s Steve Ellis explains how to specify coaxial blind-mate connectors. A blind-mate connector is used when access to the connection point is not possible, typically caused byRead More

RF Industries Low PIM 4.1-9.5 Mini DIN Adapters

RF Industries Low PIM 4.1-9.5 (Mini) DIN Adapters are between-series adapters for the 4.1-9.5 (Mini) DIN, 7-16 DIN, and N type interfaces.  Advanced wireless systems such as DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) require RF components that, in addition to being highly efficient in signal transfer, must have low PIM (Passive Intermodulation) properties. The N type interface designRead More

PXI Platform for Semiconductor ATE

As average sales prices for devices decrease, the cost of testing needs to decrease at the same or greater rate. The PXI platform for semiconductor ATE may be the answer. This is an excerpt from a white paper available from Geotest – Marvin Test Systems. The electronics industry is under constant pressure to lower itsRead More
