ITT develops RF switching coaxial connector for military radios

SANTA ANA, Calif., 13 July 2009. – ITT Interconnect Solutions developed an RF switching coaxial connector for antenna and printed circuit board performance verification for use in military radios, mobile phones, two-way radios, and wireless modems.

Designated LPC CP1/CP2, the military connector features a high frequency range and low insertion loss, making it ideal for handheld and wireless applications, company officials say.

"The RF switching connector provides an effective solution to passive switching between an internal circuit and external devices such as test equipment, or an antenna," says Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions. The device has a frequency range up to 2 gigahertz, he adds.

The LCP CP1/CP2 connector features a low signal loss of under 0.3dB, a minimum life of 12,000 mating cycles and a return loss VSWR of 1.2:1 at 2GHz. A cold pin minimizes RF emissions in unmated scenarios. The connector also features a low-profile 5.6mm test port, along with the ability to address angular and offset misalignment.

The connector is also available in a waterproof version (LPC SP1), which features a special rubber seal for IP67 compliance. A wide range of accessories are also available to address various test requirements.

Typical pricing for the LPC connector is approximately $0.275 each in medium volumes. Lead time is 10 weeks.
