Non Magnetic RF and Microwave Interconnects
Samtec has a wide variety of non magnetic Microwave and RF interconnect devices. Dimensions and footprints of Samtec non magnetic interconnects are identical to standard products, enabling boards to be reused if device upgrades to true non magnetic are required, saving designers time and money.
High-quality non magnetic RF interconnects are essential for optimal safety and accuracy in medical and aerospace applications. Samtec offers non magnetic interconnects for all machined RF products.
Popular RF interconnects that can be produced as non magnetic:
- SMA (straight, right angle, edge mount)
- SMB (right angle)
- MMCX (straight, right angle, edge mount, high vibration)
- MCX (straight, right angle, edge mount)
- SMP (straight, edge mount, bullet adaptors)
- RF 174 (SMA, SMB, MMCX, MCX)
- RF 178 (SMA, SMB, MMCX, MCX)
- RF 316 (SMA, SMB, MMCX, MCX)

Samtec Acquires PCI (Precision Connector, Inc.)
As long as we’re talking about RF, Samtec recently made the big announcement that we acquired the assets and going-forward business relationship of Precision Connector, Inc., or PCI. PCI specializes in design and manufacture of precision RF and microwave coaxial connectors and brings over 25 years of design experience in the RF/Microwave industry to the Samtec team.
The additional engineering support and product offering of precision interconnects — such as 3.50 mm, 2.92 mm, SMP, 2.40 mm, 1.85 mm, SMPM and 1.0 mm — will further strengthen Samtec’s RF portfolio and accelerate Samtec advancements into the precision RF sector.
New Bulls Eye®
Bulls Eye high-performance test point systems are now available in 50 GHz and 20 GHz designs, with systems up to 65 GHz in development. A compression interface, small footprint, and high cycle count make Bulls Eye ideal for high-performance test applications. The high-density array design significantly saves PCB space compared to traditional test points.
