PCB solderless connector

Solderless Compression Mount type, solderless probe-type, and Edge-Launch connectors are among the most widely available choices for high-speed digital component testing and test and measurement today. Focusimple offers a wide range of PCB solderless connectors in a variety of configurations and has been in the microwave industry for over 10 years, designed to provide the lowest VSWR solution for single and multi-layer microstrip or grounded coplanar PCBs, with a modeless wide response up to 110 GHz.

These termination End Launch connectors feature a unique two-piece bottom fixture that accommodates board thicknesses up to 300 mil (7.62mm) for effective grounding between the connector and the PCB. The connector pins are designed to mate with the board trace, eliminating the need for soldering. The combination of the bottom fixture and solderless pins provides for easy removal and reuse.

Features & Benefits:

  • Easy to install and remove, Diverse optional types
  • Low VSWR, Low Insertion Loss
  • Rugged & Durable
  • Excellent Repeatability

Application:

  • Test & Measurement
  • Research & development
  • High-speed digital component testing
  • Precision PCB board thin base material interconnection installation

Types:

  • Probe Type: Stripline, vertical installation.

When in contact with the PCB sheet, the centre conductor elastically retracts to ensure the integrity of the contact surface of the PCB sheet, resulting in more stable product performance.

  • Compression Mount Type: Stripline, vertical installation.

Robust mechanical construction, especially suitable for thicker and harder plates;

Stable RF signal transmission, is an efficient and economical solution for stripline connections.

  • Compression Mount Type: Microstrip line, vertical installation.

Robust mechanical construction, especially suitable for thicker and harder plates;

Stable RF signal transmission, an efficient and economical solution for Microstrip line connections.

  • Edge Launch Type: Microstrip line, Edge panel mounting.

Mounting at the edge of the PCB;

Signal transfer traces of the connector inner conductor are co-linear with the PCB signal transfer;

Suitable for high-frequency operation.

What is Microstrip & Stripline?

Stripline

  • A type of transmission line that consists of a conductor sandwiched between two ground planes, all embedded within a dielectric material
  • Excellent external EMI shielding
  • Thicker and more difficult to manufacture

Microstrip

  • A type of transmission line that consists of a single conducting strip separated from a ground plane by a dielectric layer
  • More susceptible to external electromagnetic interference
  • Easier to manufacture and cost-efficient
