Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, offers small form factor MMBX connectors and adapters most commonly used on circuit boards and their associated input/output connections for industrial, telecom and consumer product applications.

MMBX-style connectors and adapters are specifically designed to provide versatile and easy PCB-to-PCB connections as well as coax-to-PCB connections. Their mechanical design also allows them to work well in backplane applications. The adapters and connectors feature gold-plated beryllium copper contacts and offer a maximum operating frequency of 12.4 GHz, a VSWR of 1.06:1 and mechanical misalignment tolerance of 4.5° (or 0.7 mm) max.

In addition to an extensive portfolio of standalone MMBX connectors and adapters, Fairview can also build custom cable assemblies using flexible coax or formable versions of semi-rigid coaxial cable terminated with these MMBX connectors. Fairview’s surface-mount and PCB MMBX connectors are also available for sale in "tape and reel" packaging for pick and place circuit board manufacturing applications.
