RF Connectors

SMP-L Interconnect Series

This connector series incorporates Secure-Lok™, a patented locking mechanism, into the standard SMP interface, which reinforces holding power.

SMPM® Interconnect Series

The industry standard for RF/microwave applications, this connector series is 30% smaller than the SMP connector, enabling increased design performance and complexity and improved form factor.

SPMS Interconnect Series

This sub-miniature, lightweight blind-mateable interconnect solution is ideal for complex high-performance microwave modules and systems where weight is the primary issue

Safe-D-LOCK® Connectors

A reliable alternative to conventional self-locking connectors, the unique design installs quickly without wasting valuable mass or space in the host system


Digital Connectors

Octax®-Solo 10 Gbps Ethernet Interconnect System

Single-port, standalone 10 gbps Ethernet connector designed for a wide variety of aerospace and military applications.

Card Edge Connectors

Designed for high-speed, high-density applications and suitable for PCIe Gen 5& 6 Systems, Gen Z systems, SATA Express, SaaS, and NVMe Systems

Gen-Z Interconnect Solutions

Supporting PCIe Gen 5 Speeds and SaaS, SATA, SATAe, and NVMe Protocol Signals


Filter Connectors

Circular Filtered Connectors

Constructed using planar filter technology for maximum strength and high performance from low to high frequencies

D-Sub & Micro-D Connectors

Meet all the requirements of MIL-PRF-24308 and MIL-PRF-83513 and offered with standard variations in mounting hardware.
