MCX Micorminiature Connectors

MCXDeveloped in Europe during the 1980s, the MCX connector is a blend of size, reliability andperformance. Though smaller and lighter than the SMB by approximately 30%.

The MCX stillpreserves the SMB's inner contact and overlapping dielectric insulator dimensions so that it can provide consistent electronic performance from DC-6 GHz. Small size and solid performance combined with its quick connect/disconnect coupling mechanism makes the MCX well suited for wireless or fixed communication systems, GPS and instrumentation applications.
