What is the ACP Connector?
Designed for use with the 047 Semi Rigid cable, the ACP is unique as it is the first commercially available coaxial connector to utilize a butt splice electrical interconnect at high frequency. This approach provides disruptive speed and low loss.
The ACP connector upgrades the industry standard “pin and socket” type interconnect with a solderless, compression fit, butt splice interconnect.
This interconnect is similar in function to those used in Integrated Circuit (IC) socket designs. We call this component the “Interposer”.
Why Choose the ACP?
Fast Risetime (Rise Time ≤ 1 ps)
High Frequency (>100GHz)
Low Loss (> -15 dB to 85 GHz)
High Density (Ø9.91mm x 4.57mm footprint)
Long Cycle Life (>100,000 Mating Cycles)
Fully Solderless, reusable and field replaceable PCB compression contact (Both PCB and Cable attachment do not require soldering)
Unique moisture sealing properties (Grease can be applied directly to the electrical interface surface and still function)
