Anritsu Offers Excellent RF Performance up to 110 GHz with W1 Connector

12/19/2003 - Anritsu Company introduces the W1 Connector, a coaxial interface system that produces excellent RF performance up to 110 GHz. Based on the 1.00 mm coaxial connector front side interface as specified by IEEE Std 287, the W1 Connector is well suited for high frequency applications ranging from components to systems and instrumentation.

The connector offering includes both male and female sparkplug connectors, as well as a female flange mount connector. The center conductor of the sparkplug connectors is supported by Anritsu's proprietary low loss, high temperature plastic bead on one end and a Teflon bead on the other to provide exceptional concentricity to the pin on the back side. The flange mount connector's center conductor is supported by a bead on the front end and by a Teflon bead on the back end. Both the sparkplug and female flange mount connectors are designed so that the center conductor extends outside the connector, allowing a direct pin overlap connection to the microwave circuit.

The design of the W1 Connector family results in high-end performance. The connectors have 50 ohm impedance, typical Return Loss of -16 dB to 110 GHz, typical insertion loss of 0.7 dB on the sparkplug connectors and 0.6 dB on the flange mount connector, and superior reliability. No other connector series matches the performance of the W1 Connectors at such a high frequency.

Anritsu has also developed W1 in-series adapters for use with the W1 Connector family. Available in M-M, M-F, or F-F configurations, the precision adapters have an air dielectric interface and a center conductor that is supported by a PPO® bead. The maximum return loss is -16 dB and the maximum insertion loss is .5 dB. In addition, the W1 Connector family includes Male and Female 1mm Broadband Terminations with -16 dB return loss (1.33 VSWR) for the Male and -14 dB return loss (1.5 VSWR) for the Female.

Delivery of all connectors, adapters and terminations is 4 to 6 weeks ARO.
