Samtec Acquires PCI (Precision Connector, Inc.)
Actually, we are announcing that we recently 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.
Precision RF operations will continue at the Franklin, IN location, as a division of Samtec, Inc.
50 Ohm RF
Samtec has a full line of 50 ohm RF connectors and cable assemblies, including MMCX, MCX, SMA, and SMP. Other products include SMB5’s, TNC, 292, Type N, TNC, and BNC. These connectors are also available as the end options on a variety of cable types, including RG 316, RG 174 and RG 178.
Micro High Frequency cable assemblies are available on 1.13 mm and .081 cable. These connectors are often referred to as types U.FL and W.FL.
75 Ohm RF
Samtec has the largest variety of 12G SDI products, including BNC7T, HDBNC, and DIN7A. HDBNC connectors have four times the panel density of traditional BNCs, a 20% reduction in weight vs. traditional BNCs, with a patented design and bayonet latch.
12G SDI, 75 ohm cable solutions are available on RG 179, RG 6, 1694A and 1855A cables.
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.
Recently Released …
We recently introduced the RF23C, a high-performance, microwave cable with copper foil shielding. The RF23C series, with performance to 50 GHz, is available in two end options: 2.92 mm and 2.40 mm. This is a 50Ω, 23 AWG solid dielectric low-loss microwave cable.
