Buying into low cost-of-ownership


Powell Electronics has announced availability of Gigalane’s one-piece, second-generation GDBC connectors for complex stack-ups in 5G systems.

The simple one-piece design enables high integration and miniaturization of board-to-board and board-to-module RF interconnections. GDBC series contacts are easy to use during assembly as they require no SMT. The connectors are said to offer the lowest total-cost-of-ownership on the market and suit multiple connections and complex stack ups in 5G systems.

Specifications include: frequency from DC to 8.5GHz; 50Ω impedance; 5000MΩ insulation resistance; and 750Vrms dielectric withstand voltage. VSWR is 1.12:1 at 3.0GHz, 1.22:1 at 6.0GHz and 1.35:1 at 8.5GHz.
