Fairview Microwave is a leading provider of on-demand RF, microwave and mmwave products that ship same-day. We cater to a wide range of industries in the US and around the world – from educational and medical institutions to telecommunication, government agencies, defense and the aerospace industry.

We stock an extensive selection of high-speed end launch Printed Circuit Board (PCB) connectors, including 1.0mm, 1.85mm, 2.4mm, and 2.92mm series connectors . Ideal for high-speed digital and mmWave system development, our reusable connectors supply Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) as low as 1.10:1 and offer coverage of 40 GHz, 50 GHz, 67 GHz, and 110 GHz.

Fairview Microwave’s range of high-performance RF, microwave and millimeter-wave connectors support increased signal density for chip evaluations, Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) and millimeter-wave applications. From delivering increased data rates and signal integrity, to test fixtures, we have the right solderless end launch RF connector solution to meet all your project requirements. That is not all, our connectors also allow designers to easily configure and customize their signal connections any way they like.

Our low-profile PCB connectors are PCTFE/PEI dielectric type,with removable end launch and 0.35 width. They come with an interface type of end launch and a 50 Ohm impedance. They do not need any soldering, are reusable, and have a compact profile, thereby saving you on PCB space. Featuring an outer conductor made of stainless steel or gold-plated beryllium copper center contact, all our connectors use a shield attachment of clamp/solder for contact. What is more, they also meet ASTM B488's high standards.

Our complete range of high-performance end launch RF connectors is available in both male and female PCB connector types. These can be used for a variety of applications, including general-purpose testing, PCB applications, signal integrity measurement, coplanar edge launches, chip evaluations, 28Gbps SerDes, end launch test fixtures and substrate measurements.

All our end launch PCB connectors are in stock and available for same-day shipping. We also build custom cable connector assemblies to your exact specifications. With low or no minimum order quantities, they are ready to ship at once.

Our Custom Services

    Performance Testing

Know the performance of your high-speed end launch connector system’s components. Our RF performance test data includes input return loss (S11), insertion loss (S21), output return loss (S22) and isolation (S12). Tests are performed utilizing our Anritsu MS4647B vector network analyzer and can be delivered in CSV and PNG file formats.

    Cable Phase Matching

    Ensure your high-performance end launch RF connector cable assembly pair’s electrical length is within 6 picoseconds with phase matching performed by our highly skilled technicians. Available on many of our cable assemblies.

    Custom Cable Assemblies

    When off-the-shelf end launch PCB connector cable assemblies won’t meet your need, we offer a variety of custom options including labeling, clocking, pigtails and more. Special requests are welcome, prices vary and most assemblies will ship the same day you order.

    Custom Kits

    Conveniently organize and protect the low-profile PCB connector components you need with a kit developed to your requirements. All of our custom kits are packaged in easy access protective cases and, like most of our products, shipped the day.

    3D CAD Drawings

    We are pleased to support your high-speed end launch Printed Circuit Board (PCB) connector design needs with three-dimensional (3D) CAD drawings of any one of the thousands of SKUs available on our website. DWG, DXF, STL or IGES file formats are available.

    The RF Cable Designer™

    At Fairview Microwave, we understand certain projects may require a customized waveguide directional coupler. With a few clicks, our RF Cable Designer easily allows you to create your own cable assembly from any combination of in-stock waveguide directional couplers, connectors and cables.
