Cinch Connectivity Solutions Announces the Johnson™ Vertical Launch Expansion to Frequencies of 50GHz and 67GHz

Waseca, MN [September 24, 2020] Cinch Connectivity Solutions, a Bel group company, (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) and global leader in delivering reliable connectivity solutions, announces the Johnson 1.85mm and 2.4mm vertical launch compression mount PCB connectors. These connectors provide exceptional performance up to the higher mmWave frequencies of 50 GHz(2.4mm) and 67 GHz(1.85mm).

The Johnson 1.85mm and 2.4mm Vertical Launch Connectors are screw-mounted and solderless, allowing for both quick and easy mounting and removal on PC boards. There are two new versions at each frequency supporting both microstrip and strip-line designs. The microstrip parts feature a side groove design that enables either microstrip or grounded coplanar waveguide (GCPW) configurations. These high-quality stainless-steel parts also offer excellent technical performance with a 1.35 Max VSWR and 0.25dB Max Insertion Loss out to 67 GHz. Typical applications include test and measurement, semiconductor board characterization fixtures, and semiconductor ATE test boards.
