AFI CONNECTOR SERIES

 

The AFI connector series is a solution for board-to-board RF applications, especially for the military and broadband marketplaces.

The AFI interface utilizes a proprietary configuration that allows for industry leading “float” to compensate for the axial and radial misalignment due to packaging tolerances. This industry-leading float results in a maximum misalignment allowed by the system of .030” [0,8 mm] radial and .040” [1,0 mm] axial.

The interface is available in two configurations: 75 Ω with a performance of DC to 3 GHz and 50 Ω with a performance of DC to 6 GHz.
