5G mmWave RF Flex-to-Board Connectors for High-Speed Digital RF Applications

Mouser Electronics is now stocking the 5G15 Series 5G mmWave RF flex-to-board connectors from Molex. Designed for advanced 5G applications requiring design flexibility, robust mating, and minimal PCB space requirements, the 5G15 Series connectors provide engineers extreme versatility and usability while also delivering leading signal integrity performance of up to 15 GHz.

The Molex 5G15 Series 5G mmWave RF flex-to-board connectors, available from Mouser Electronics, are available in two configurations: a two-RF signal line with a 1 A power line and an alternative option with four RF signal lines with no power. Both options are engineered using a receptacle center shield, which isolates each row to provide excellent signal integrity while enabling good separation for EMI shielding. Other features include a wide alignment pitch of 0.35 mm for easy mating, an overmold design to prevent pin pullout, and an armored split nail that protects the connectors from damage during mating and allows for dual use as power or ground.

The 5G15 Series connectors offer a maximum current of 2 A (1 A per pin max.) and support 5G mmWave, Sub 6 GHz, 4G/LTE, or any high-speed applications that require digital RF connections up to 15 GHz. The connectors can also be combined with RF and other non-RF connection functions into a single connector to save PCB space and cost or to replace the use of multiple coaxial cables by combining them as a single board-to-board connector.

The robust mating with vertical and PCB real-estate space-saving features makes the Molex 5G15 Series connectors ideally suited for 5G communication applications for consumer, smart home and medical devices, surgical equipment, and wearables, as well as various AR/VR, and industrial IoT applications.
