Samtec Inc. has expanded its portfolio of MMCX, MCX, SMA and MHF connectors with the GRF1 series addition of ganged RF board-to-board jacks, plugs and cable assemblies.

Ganged RF cable plugs are offered for terminating two, four, six or eight wires simultaneously with a choice of a standard 26 AWG coax cable or high-performance 26 AWG coax cable with a 1.4 dielectric constant. The ganged assemblies are available with captive screw options for rugged applications. Standard assemblies may be specified with wire lengths from 6 inches to one meter. Custom cable assemblies are available with a quick turn-around in prototype to mid-size quantities.

Ganged RF board-to-board jacks and plugs are also available for terminating two, four, six or eight connectors simultaneously. Standard board spacing is 4.5mm. Captive screw receptacles are available on the jacks for mating to wire assemblies.

Prices vary by pin count and cable length. An average price per position is $15 for a cable system and $8 for board-to-board sets (per position).
