Anritsu Introduces VP™ Connector Family That Provides High-end Performance up to 65 GHz

7/22/2002 - Anritsu Company introduces a family of VP™ Connectors that bring the inherent advantages of Anritsu’s Integrated V Connector design to push-on connectors. Providing exceptional performance over the DC ~ 65 GHz frequency range, the VP Connectors are well suited for use as RF input connectors in 40 Gbps optical modulators, especially those systems that use the NRZ modulation format where greater bandwidth is required to minimize signal degradation.

Included in the VP Connector family are a VP to semi-rigid cable connector (VP101F), a VP Bullet (VP102F), and a VP-VF adapter (VP103F). In addition to being used in optical modulators, the VP Connectors can be used in traditional microwave applications where specified connector performance at frequencies up to 65 GHz is needed.

The VP Shroud utilizes an Anritsu design that integrates the glass bead into a receptacle that includes a snap-in feature. The VP Shroud also incorporates an innovative ground lip that provides the user with a simpler method of achieving a high quality ground connection at the connector. These innovative design techniques help the VP Shrouds produce excellent return loss of 12 dB over the entire frequency range. The integrated design also reduces design and manufacturing costs of the customer’s housing.

Two shroud types are available in the VP Connector family to accommodate a variety of design requirements. The VP100BMS10, VP100BMS75, VP100BCPW, and VP100BNL are solder-in versions, while the VP100B is a screw-in type.

The VP Bullet exhibits exceptional performance due to its unique design concept. It is designed with six slots in the outer conductor and four slots in the center conductor. The increase in the number of slots in the outer conductor reduces the insertion and extraction force to less than one half of the force required for conventional SMP connectors and thus reduces wear and tear.

The VP Connector family is competitively priced with quantity discounts. Delivery is 2 to 4 weeks.
