Murata Electronics North America recently announced the world's lowest profile RF micro coaxial connector series. The new JSC series has a maximum profile of 1.0mm, making it ideal for high-tech wireless products including tablets, smart phones, e-books and other mobile devices. The low profile is possible through advanced manufacturing techniques used for both the board mounted connector and the micro coaxial cable.

The JSC series includes a board mounted receptacle (MM5829-2700) which mates with a RF cable (MXJA01xxxxxx) that has a diameter of 0.81mm.  The receptacle measures 2mm x 1.8mm x 0.5mm and the mated height of both the receptacle and cable plug is 1.0mm maximum. The part is designed to withstand up to 30 mating cycles and emits an audible click on connecting. The connector and cable structure is optimized to ensure excellent RF performance up to 12GHz.

The RF performance is best summarized by its voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), which is 1.3 GHz up to 3GHz, 1.4 GHz maximum between 3 GHz and 6 GHz, 1.5 GHz maximum between 6 GHz and 9 GHz, and 1.6 GHz maximum between 9GHz and 12 GHz. With the multiple cable configurations available, it allows individuals flexibility and options within their designs.

The pricing of Murata's JSC receptacle is $0.25 and a typical lead-time is 10 weeks.  Further information can be found online at
