Microwave Journal Most Valuable Product

May 20, 2016 – Tempe, Arizona – Southwest Microwave is pleased to announce the selection of our SuperMini Board-to-Board DC to 67 GHz Connectors for Microwave Journal’s Most Valuable Product (MVP) designation.

Microwave Journal’s May edition features the article “Pushing Board-to-Board Interconnect Performance Boundaries,” detailing Southwest Microwave’s ground-up design approach in developing these ultra-high frequency, miniaturized push-on interconnect solutions for high density PCB interface to address the performance issues of sub-miniature push-on connectors.

“It’s an honor to receive this recognition from a publication as prestigious as Microwave Journal,” said Don Bradfield, Southwest Microwave’s General Manager. “It coincides nicely with our recent aggressive push to showcase the unique capabilities of these ultra-miniature connectors.”

Ideal for defense, aerospace, communications, networking and test applications, these lightweight yet rugged blind-mate connectors enhance reliability and optimize function for board-to-board stacking, edge-mount to backplane or board-to-panel interconnections.

Based on Southwest Microwave’s superior coax platform, SuperMini Board-to-Board Connectors maximize electrical performance of the transmission path between connector and circuit while accommodating axial misalignment of up to .010″ and radial misalignment of +/- 10° via unique bullet and PCB receptacle (jack) designs.

With an array of available bullets that enable board-to-board spacing as close as 3 mm, this solution assures RF / millimeter wave transmission line dependability for tightly stacked PCBs.
