TE Connectivity ERFV Coax Connectors

TE Connectivity ERFV Coax Connectors are a cost-saving connectivity solution for 5G wireless designs. ERFV connectors use a one-piece compressive design with solutions for between-board distances from 5.2mm to 20mm, with a 15mm pitch. 

Connectors are available for board-to-board and board-to-filter applications and they’re designed for reliable blind mating to the target pad with excellent misalignment tolerance. Board-to-board connectors are surface mounted to the base board, while board-to-filter connectors are available in push-in or screw-on types.

ERFV connectors maintain the excellent performance required in wireless applications from DC to 10GHz, with high return loss and isolation as well as low insertion loss. The connectors have a gold plated brass center contact and a copper alloy outer contact inside a brass outer shell, with an operating temperature up to 125°C.
