Richardson RFPD introduces two new connector series from Carlisle IT

November 5, 2012

Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two new connector series from Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (Carlisle IT). The new series are extensions of Carlisle IT's push-on connector family.

The TMP® connectors are designed to provide a convenient blind-mateable solution specifically for high power applications. The TMP interface is comparable in size to an SMA connector, and offers similar power handling capability and durability in a push-on configuration. It is ideal for design in radar, missile and satellite systems, as well as commercial applications.

Key features of the TMP series include:

  • DC to 23 GHz frequency range
  • 50 Ohm impedance
  • Push-On interface
  • Blind-Mate with Radial and Axial float
  • Over 5000 Mate & De-mate cycles
  • Available in full, limited, and Catchers Mit detents
  • Options include Board Mount, Field Replaceable, Bullets and Cable Connector configurations
  • MIL-PRF-39012 compliant

The WMP® series offers a small form factor push on blind-mate solution for high frequency applications like military radios, electronic countermeasure, and test and measurement, from DC to 100 GHz. The WMP series is designed to satisfy the demand for increased package density and reduced weight in microwave systems. The sub-miniature, lightweight blind-mateable interconnect solution is ideal for complex high performance microwave modules and systems where weight is the primary issue.

Key features of the WMP Series include:

  • DC to 100 GHz frequency range
  • Push-On interface
  • Blind-Mate with Radial and Axial float
  • Available in full, limited, and Catchers Mit detents
  • Options include Board Mount, Edge Launch, and Cable Connector configurations

Common configurations are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
