RF coaxial IDC connectors
28 August 2019, Interconnection

AVX has released new wire-to-board RF coaxial IDC connectors for industrial and automotive applications. The initial release of the new 00-6791 Series is comprised of two small, single-piece solutions suited to different types of coaxial cable, and features a patented one-touch coaxial cable termination mechanism that simplifies the connection process.

The new connectors deliver high-quality RF performance that surpasses that of cables soldered directly to a PCB, have a lower component cost and smaller physical size than traditional two-piece RF connectors with comparable performance – measuring down to 10 x 6,6 x 3,9 mm (L x W x H) when seated, and enable easier, less time-consuming, and less costly assemblies than both soldered connections and traditional RF connectors.

Designed to satisfy demanding automotive and industrial requirements, the series features mechanical bracing for high-strength performance capabilities and is fully compatible with both automated SMT pick-and-place processing and automated lead-free reflow soldering.

The new IDC connectors are also compatible with Bluetooth, GPS, GSM and WLAN protocols, and are rated for 0,5 A (depending on the cable), 125 V a.c. operation, 70 N of horizontal pull-force, 20 N of vertical pull-force, and frequencies up to 6 GHz.

The termination process requires only three simple steps: strip the outer jacket and braid shield, insert the cable with the inner jacket still intact, and manually or automatically depress the insulator cap. This process allows the IDC contacts to pierce the coaxial cable jacket and dielectric and make direct contact with the braid shield and conductor at the same time.

Three windows in the insulator caps reveal the position of the cable, enabling visual confirmation of proper termination, and are compatible with camera-enabled automated cable positioning verification systems. Further, should anything happen during the production process that requires the removal of the connector or cable, the caps can be removed to expose the contact tails, which can then be heated and either reworked or removed as well.

Currently available in two versions for different cable sizes, the 00-6791 Series features phosphor bronze signal and braid contacts, glass-filled Nylon 46 insulators, lead-free tin-over-nickel-plated terminations, and a stainless steel support plate.
