Co-Star the Harrogate based ICT company who specialise in connecting the latest 5G technologies are launching a range of 2.92mm K connectors for 5G applications up to 40GHz.
The 2.92mm (K) Connector’s interface is similar to that of SMA connectors, but utilizes an air dielectric and engineering-plastics support bead for higher frequency than PC3.5mm and SMA connectors. It is a precision connector designed to perform mode free to 40GHz. In response to the advent of the fifth generation of wireless communication protocols, the 2.92 mm (K) series of products are also suitable for millimeter wave applications.
This design increases the outer-conductor contact area at the interface for more reliable electrical performance and higher mechanical strength than PC3.5mm and SMA connectors.
The outer conductor measures 2.92mm with a strong outer body wall compared to dielectric loaded interfaces of comparable size.
2.92mm connectors are mechanically compatible with SMA and 3.5mm connectors, but the male center pin is shortened to allow outer conductor engagement before the center contacts mate, preventing damage to the female contact pins.
Co-Star are developing 2.92mm male and female crimp connectors and a range of adaptors including male to male and male to female.
Tim Cosgrove of Co-Star commented:
“It’s important that Co-Star leads the way when it comes to connecting the latest technologies such as 5G. The range of 2.92mm connectors and adaptors that we have developed are designed to seamlessly connected antennas to the latest 5G connected devices and wireless router equipment and maximise the performance of the equipment”.
