Fairview Microwave introduces a recent family of ultra-miniature UMCX, WMCX and HMCX32 cable assemblies. Commonly used to connect an external antenna to a mini-PCB, these flexible micro-coax jumpers offer operation from DC to 6GHz, which are suitable for use in wireless communications systems. Additional wireless applications include antennas for GPS and other radio systems, WiFi, WLAN, Bluetooth, ZigBee, LTE, mini-PCI and PDA/PCS/cellular handset applications.
Fairview Microwave’s UMCX and WMCX cable assemblies are compatible with Hirose U.FL and W.FL connectors respectively and feature miniature snap-on connectors with mated connection heights ranging from only 1.2 to 2.5mm. In total, Fairview is releasing 40 unique configurations with multiple coax options including 0.81, 1.13, 1.37mm, RG178 and double shielded RG178 (RG178-DS). In-series and between-series cable assemblies are available.
The ultra-miniature UMCX, WMCX and HMCX32 cable assemblies from Fairview are offered in standard lengths (6, 9, 12") from stock while custom length versions and special configurations are available upon request with quoted lead times. Each of these recent cable assemblies are 100% RF tested and continuity tested prior to shipment.
“As wireless systems and hardware continue to get smaller, the demand for miniature, low profile cables and connectors increases,” says Brian McCutcheon, Vice President and General Manager, Fairview Microwave. “Fairview’s continually expanding offering of popular interconnect solutions is designed to meet the increasing needs of engineers in today’s ever-changing electronics landscape.”
