In the global consumer electronics market, manufacturers face constant pressure to produce devices and equipment that is smaller and lighter than the previous generation. Thankfully, Amphenol RF develops compact components that allow OEMs to create appealing new products. Notably, the firm’s line of Amphenol Micro Coaxial (AMC) connectors provide high-frequency transmission with a minimal footprint.
Amphenol’s AMC connectors are notable because of their size. The components have an off the board profile of 2.5 mm and a footprint of 3 mm x 3 mm. As such, they consume very little PCB space, which helps OEMs produce sleek and lightweight new devices.
Furthermore, Amphenol made its AMC line capable of snap on/snap off mating with other components. Accordingly, manufacturers interested in minimizing device assembly time would be well served by investing in these surface mounted connectors.
In addition, the AMC series supports high-frequency transmissions from DC to 6 GHz. The connectors also have a nominal impedance rate of 50 ohms. Also, the low-profile parts possess an operating voltage of 500 Vrms and a temperature range of -40°C to 90°C.
The manufacturer also made its AMC series 100 percent compatible with Hirose U.FL connectors to maximize their functionality.
Amphenol’s components also have applications in the manufacture of remote measuring equipment and wireless local area network components. Moreover, AMC connectors are ideal for use in Bluetooth enabled devices and appliances.
