Coaxial Contacts feature operating frequency of DC to 40 GHz.
June 25, 2010 -
Compatible with all Size 8 D38999 Series I and III inserts, Coaxial Contacts use standard interfaces based on MIL-STD-348 and can be terminated to multiple cable types, depending on application. High frequencies are maintained by Float Mount technology, which allows for consistent microwave performance while maintaining tight mechanical tolerances. Applications include military communication terminals, shipboard and airborne systems, and phased array radars.

Amphenol Aerospace now offers DC to 40 GHz size 8 coaxial contacts for the D38999 housing and standard inserts. These contacts can be terminated to a multiple of cable types depending on the application. By using standard interfaces that are based on MIL-STD-348 and can be installed in any D38999 size 8 insert, Amphenol has transformed the circular connector industry. This technology will allow any application to continue to use the D38999 connector and be able to expand the use to include the microwave transmission lines within the multi-port configuration without change to a custom connector.
The high frequencies are maintained by Amphenol's unique "Float Mount" technology designed into the contacts. This technology allows for consistent microwave performance while maintaining tight mechanical tolerances. This consistency provides superior electrical performance and, unlike other blind mate connectors, will maintain an accurate phase length when mated.
