Ardent Concepts releases industry's highest bandwidth multicoax connector

May 2, 2016

Ardent Concepts Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance GHz connectors used in the development of next generation semiconductor applications and systems has again pushed bandwidth barriers with a 70 GHz configuration of its innovative TR Multicoax series connectors. TR 70 realizes Ardent’s mission to bring tomorrows connector solutions to market today. With exceptionally low loss, TR 70 ensures quicker, more accurate, and more repeatable functional test of cutting-edge IC applications.

“Ardent is committed to supporting the growing need of integrated circuit and systems developers in an industry that is continually requiring clean signal measurement of ever-increasing bandwidths,” said Ardent president and chief technology officer, Gordon Vinther. “Our philosophy is that engineering breakthroughs shouldn’t be limited by the tools available in a lab or production environment. We develop our connectors to outperform the current industry needs so our customers can look towards the future. We echo this by making all of our multicoax product families footprint compatible so customers always have a connector available that meets their speed requirements.”

The TR Multicoax series now features 20/40/70 GHz connectors for customers with wide ranging bandwidth needs. As a solderless compression mount solution, TR Multicoax offers repeatable connector performance in any application and across programs. Our small footprint means engineers don’t have to be constrained by the size of their boards or limited in the channels they can access. TR Multicoax series provides engineers with industry leading performance and reliability in markets such as IC development, communications systems, or even quantum computing.
