Cinch Connectivity Solutions, a Bel group company, announced the Johnson 1.85 mm, 2.4 mm and 2.9 2mm Screw-on Low Profile End Launch Connectors. These end launch connectors are easy to mount and to remove from PC Boards, work with various board thicknesses and reducing the footprint requirements without sacrificing performance, resulting in design convenience.

The Johnson 1.85 mm, 2.4 mm and 2.9 2mm Low Profile End Launch expansion are designed at a height of 0.375”, compared with our standard parts which have a height of 0.500”. The decrease in height helps design engineers who are working with height restrictions. A solderless design allows for high RF performance and the connectors can be easily mounted by using screws and reused with less difficulty of soldering. Maximum VSWR of 1.35 out to 67 GHz; insertion loss of 0.25dB max. Applications include test and measurement, chip testing fixtures, board characterization and communication industries.
