Unique Connector Addresses RF-Energy Apps

HUBER+SUHNER introduces the RFEX RF-Energy connector that is touted as a first of its kind. Reportedly, the RFEX offers users a record low-cost solution for high volume RF-Energy applications. Designed to handle the mandatory high-power levels in peak demand applications and avoid unnecessary heat generation, the RFEX is said to drastically simplify tedious assembly processes.

 

Previous antenna connectivity issues involving RF-connectors and cables no longer apply, as the RFEX features an antenna which is mounted to the topside of the amplifier housing, making it perfect for connecting rectangular waveguides, dielectric filled waveguides and cooking cavities. While a significant number of components were previously needed to support RF-Energy related building blocks in applications like RF-Ovens and microwaves, the RFEX is directly integrated into the amplifier housing, significantly reducing size and the number of parts required.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

 

The RFEX will be presented in combination with dielectric filled waveguides, which as compared to traditional waveguides, bring advantages such as smaller size, lighter weight and higher flexibility. This is specifically important for RF-Energy applications, since they typically feature two or more amplifiers, requiring an efficient RF-power distribution to the optimal feeding points of the application.
