Military-Grade Interconnects

Junkosha is launching two interconnects, the MWX3 series and the MWX161. The MWX3 series is designed for high end military communication and radar systems and features characteristics including excellent temperature phase and amplitude stability, meaning it has the strongest properties for use in the harshest of environments. In addition, the new MWX161 interconnect reaches up to the 67 GHz range, and has been designed for connecting to a 16-port VNA. This is due to the small diameter of the interconnect. To add to its ease of connection, a torque driver is available to mount it onto the narrow pitch connector arrangement board.


Broadband Conicals

Gowanda Electronics announces an expansion of its conical product line. The new broadband microwave RF conical inductors – C102 & C182 – are available in Surface Mount (SM) and Flying Lead (FL) configurations to enhance utility in the electronics design community, especially for communication applications. The performance ranges provided by these new wirewound conical series - C102FL, C102SM, C182FL and C182SM – include inductance from 0.47 µH to 10.7 µH, DCR ohms from 0.19 to 7.10 and current rating mA DC from 150 to 815.
