A broad range of adapters and connectors designed for long life, exceptional repeatability, and legendary reliability. Metrology grade, instrument grade, and general purpose grade adapters are available in frequencies up to 110GHz.
The female connector in connectors in these adapters have slotless connectors. Precision slotless connectors prevent diameter variations in the female center conductor, therefore allowing greater control over connector impedance, unlike instrument-grade or general purpose connectors.
Instrument-grade 3.5 mm adapters have highly rugged physical interfaces that would mate with popular SMA dimensions, allowing thousands of repeatable connections. Many of these adapters offer mode-free performance up to 34 GHz.
The Keysight 11923A 1.0 mm female connector launch is designed to thread into a package or fixture housing to transition a microwave circuit from microstrip to coaxial connector. The Keysight 11923A connector launch is intended for use with 110 GHz test systems such as the Keysight 8510XF. The Keysight 11923A comes pre-assembled, but the user is responsible for machining the package and installing the connector. The procedure describing the necessary geometry for the package and installation will be provided.
