Latest 12G MCX Connectors Boost Frequency Capability

Jan. 7, 2020
Supporting up to 12-Gb/s data rates, Amphenol's new connectors wherever any high-speed connection is required.

The newest member in Amphenol’s 12G line is an enhanced 75-Ω MCX connector. The connectors can support data rates up to 12 Gb/s and are marketed toward the 4K and Ultra HD broadcast applications. However, the connectors can be used wherever a high-speed signal connection is needed.

Operating frequency range includes dc through 12 GHz with a spec’d return loss of 20 dB up to 6 GHz and 15 dB guaranteed up to 12 GHz. The connectors are rated to operate over temperature ranges from −65 to +165°C. Although MCX connectors are larger than MMCX and lower-profile options such as IPEX, they offer a more rigid and durable connection for cables.
