2014 IMPACT Award Winner: W. L. Gore & Associates wins for Packaging and Interconnects
The low-profile right-angle connector (ZQA) from W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Newark, DE) features a non-bifurcated swept contact design for use with low-loss microwave coaxial cable qualified for 32 GHz spaceflight applications. Features include:
· The physical advantages of the box right-angle designs — i.e., low profile and compact size — while maintaining electrical performance comparable with conventional straight connectors.
· Superior impedance control, maintaining a low reflection path as the signal transitions from cable through connector.
· IEEE 287 standards for precision coaxial connectors with respect to inner conductor, outer conductor, and contact height dimensions.
