What is the ACP Connector? How does it work?

The ACP connector is the worlds first elastomeric based coaxial connector. The ACP Connector replaces the industry standard Male/Female sexualized pins with an asexual elastomeric interface we call the "interposer".

 

Each ACP Connector assembly contains 3 components, the cable plug, the board jack and the interposer. Each assembly includes both male and female mechanical mating bodies. Only the cable to board interface, the interposer, is asexual.

In an ACP Connector, the cable itself is cleaved at a 90 angle and polished smooth. This polished surface is then pressed against the interposer, making electrical connection.
