Mini-DIN adapters for land-mobile radio RF and microwave applications introduced by Fairview
ALLEN, Texas, 10 March 2014. Fairview Microwave Inc. in Allen, Texas, is introducing 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).
Additional applications of these RF and microwave adapters include land-mobile radio 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, company officials say. 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.
