Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, now offers small form factor MMBX connectors and adapters most commonly used on circuit boards and their associated input/output connections for industrial, telecom and consumer product applications.

MMBX style connectors and adapters were developed to provide a versatile and easy PCB-to-PCB connection as well as coax-to-PCB connections. Due to their mechanical design, they also work well in backplane applications. These MMBX adapters and connectors from Pasternack offer a maximum operating frequency of 12.4 GHz, excellent VSWR of 1.06:1, mechanical misalignment tolerance of 4.5° (or 0.7mm) max and feature gold plated beryllium copper contacts.

In addition to a wide breadth of standalone MMBX connectors and adapters, Pasternack can also build custom cable assemblies using flexible or semi-rigid coax cable options terminated with their new MMBX connectors. Additionally, the company’s surface mount and PCB MMBX connectors are available for sale in ‘tape and reel’ packaging for pick and place circuit board manufacturing applications.

“The addition of these new MMBX connectors and adapters now allows Pasternack to better serve our customer’s requirements for circuit board interconnect solutions,” explains Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager at Pasternack. “Moreover, Pasternack can now provide custom MMBX cable assemblies that are built and shipped the same day, addressing our customer’s urgent requirements.”
