Design engineers can now leverage the utility of a 38999 format high-speed RF connector in harsh environment applications, following PA&E's (Wenatchee, WA) release of its new hermetic 38999 BMA (Blind Mate Attach) RF connector line. These new high-performance BMA connectors are available in laser-weld or jam-nut configurations with 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 contacts. Six key-way patterns and 11-80, 17-75, 21-48, 21-75, 23-06 and 25-08 shell sizes are also available. All formats provide RF performance of ≤1 db insertion loss at 18 GHz and have a hermetic leak rate of ≤1x10-9 cc He@1 ATM.
