Flex-to-Board RF mmWave Connector 5G25 Series

Oct. 8, 2021
The Flex-to-Board RF mmWave Connector 5G25 Series from Molex supports high-speed data transmission in a space-saving solution.

Designed to meet demanding 5G mmWave applications requiring stringent signal integrity at higher frequencies up to 25 GHz, the Flex-to-Board RF mmWave Connector 5G25 Series enables manufacturers of RF antenna modules as well as designers of mobile devices to optimize high-speed 5G components while alleviating space constraints on extremely small and increasingly crowded printed circuit boards. 


The series supports high-speed data transmission in a space-saving solution that offers extra protection from harsh environmental conditions. Featuring a signal pitch of 350 ?m (0.35 mm), a mated body height of only 600 ?m (0.6 mm), a short body width of 2500 ?m (2.5 mm), and a length of 3600 ?m (3.6 mm), the compact size of the 5G25 offers elevated printed wiring board (PWB) design flexibility. Moreover, the 5G25 enables designers of RF antenna modules and mobile devices to combine RF and non-RF signals, which reduces the need for additional connectors while producing additional space and cost savings. 


The 5G25 features full Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) shielding, encompassing both RF terminal and full connector shielding to ensure signal integrity. By employing a center shield-in contact with receptacle and plug, each row can be isolated to boost overall signal-integrity stability.


It facilitates fast, trouble-free assembly with excellent “click feeling” to prevent mismating. Additionally, the ultra-compact connectors feature robust peel force to increase reliability and minimize the load on assembly operators or automatic assembly machines.
