Southwest Microwave, Inc., a leading global supplier of high performance microwave connectors, has announced the introduction of a new line of 1.0 mm (W) DC to 110 GHz connectors. Products in this high-frequency connector series include field-replaceable two and four-holeflange mount and thread-in connectors, direct solder cable connectors, and clamp-on end launch connectors, including low profile and reduced-size low-profile versions.

Made in the U.S. and built to Southwest Microwave’s rigorous performance and quality standards, 1.0 mm (W) connectors are rugged and durable, featuring a 360° raised grounding ring and operational temperature rating of -55° to 165°C. 1.0 mm connectors provide mode-free operation through 110 GHz, offering well-matched impedance, excellent repeatability, and the industry’s lowest VSWR (1.2:1), insertion loss (0.6 dB) and RF leakage (≤ -100 dB).

“As the industry’s first field-replaceable 1 millimeter connectors, 1.0 mm flange mount and thread-in products represent the latest in Southwest Microwave’s long history of innovation and strong support of connector interchangeability,” said Holger Stuehrmann, Southwest Microwave’s director of sales. “Coupling this with our industry-leading performance results, the series as a whole provides exciting solutions for broadband applications up to 110 GHz.” 

Southwest Microwave plans to continue to expand 1.0 mm (W) offerings over the coming months with additional connectors and a number of commonly-used within and between series adapters. Visit to learn more.
