Coax Connectors

Coax connectors are a type of electrical connector specially made to maintain shielding of high frequency RF (Radio Frequency) transmissions through a coax cable. Coax connectors are specially designed to maintain impedance through a transmission line. Lighthorse Technologies INC manufactures a broad range of coax connectors for your RF applications.

Coax connectors vary widely depending on number of factors including space requirements, frequency requirements, mutability, durability, insertion loss & characteristic impedance among other factors. Please see Variables to Consider When Choosing Coax Connector Type for more information.

coax connectors have become increasingly smaller over the years since electronic devices have become smaller. This has led to a new revolution in micro-miniature connectors such as the IPX connector, which is 100% equivalent to all Hirose U.FL connectors.

SMA coax connectors

SMA connector image

SMA is the abbreviated version of Subminiature Version A. These are extremely versatile connectors that can operate at frequencies up to 18GHz. SMA connectors are medium-sized connectors making them ideal for a vast number of applications. SMA connector from Lighthorse Techologies Inc are designed to conform to MIL-C-39012 specifications...

RP-SMA coax connectors

RP-SMA connector image

RP-SMA stands for Reverse-Polarity SMA connectors. These connectors feature the same design as SMA connectors. The major difference between SMA and RP-SMA coax connectors is which gender connector houses the contact pin. With RP-SMA connectors, the Female/Jack connector with the threads on the outside house the contact pin. RP-SMA male/plug connectors with threads on the inside do not house the contact pin....

MCX coax connectors

MCX connector image

The MCX coax connector has been designed and manufactured as a lightweight snap on sub miniature connector. It is similar to the SMB connector but distinctive in that it is smaller in profile. It finds application where lesser connection and disconnection forces are required and where the surface application requires minimal height off the PC board.(read more)
