As consumers, wireless technology is often taken for granted. How difficult would everyday life be without it? Can I open my garage door today? How do I turn on my Smart TV? Where are my social networks?
Most of our daily wireless connections – from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to cellular, SatNav and GPS – use carrier frequencies below ~6 GHz. Typical 50 ohm SMA connectors and cable assemblies (or similar) usually work in these types of applications.
What about newer applications like 5G and Autonomous Vehicles? 5G uses carrier frequencies from 30 GHz to 300 GHz. Automotive Radar used in ADAS uses 24 GHz for SRR applications and 77 GHz for LRR applications. Clearly, Precision RF interconnect solutions supporting higher carrier frequencies are needed.

These and other emerging applications are driving the need for microwave/mmWave technology. What, exactly, is that? From Samtec’s perspective, microwave/mmWave technology refers to interconnect solutions that operate between 18 GHz and 110 GHz.
Samtec and Mouser are sponsoring Microwave and mmWave Technology for Emerging Applications at 2:00 PM EST on December 8, 2020. Samtec technical experts will review the latest microwave/mmwave applications. Additionally, look for details on Samtec’s Precision RF vertical integration of cables, connectors and technical support.
So, why is this so important? Precision RF interconnects require precise, repeatable electrical and mechanical results. Samtec’s RF engineers understand the nuance of each signal path connection. As a result, customers can trust Samtec RF interconnects to operate as advertised.
