With the introduction of the industry’s first swept right-angle microwave adapter in the 1970s, the CarlisleIT name has become synonymous with precision RF and Microwave adapters. Since then, we have perfected on our continuous transmission line right-angled design to produce optimally matched low loss adapters for nearly three decades.
CarlisleIT RF/Microwave adapters, which include Precision Connectors, SMA, 3.5 mm, 2.92 mm, 2.4 mm, and 1.85 mm, are designed for optimal performance, and come standard in a passivated stainless steel body with a captivated Beryllium Copper center conductor to ensure mating reliability.
We offer a full gender family of straight and right-angle adapters in different connector options, to cover applications ranging from DC–65 GHz. These adapters come standard in a passivated stainless steel body with a captivated Beryllium Copper center conductor to ensure mating repeatability. Also, options such as gold-plated housing or non-captivated center conductor are also available to fit the desired application. All of our adapters are 100% tested to ensure optimum performance over their respective frequency range.
CIT’s Standard RF/ Microwave Adapters are now available from distribution.
These adapters offer excellent signal integrity with low VSWR, and low insertion loss. Figure 1 shows the VSWR data and Figure 2 shows the insertion loss for a 2.92 mm female to 2.92 mm female adapter. It can be seen that the adapter introduces minimal insertion loss in the channel and an exhibits excellent VSWR performance of approximately 1.12 at 40 GHz.
