RF connector incorporates locking mechanism, latches to PCB
Designers concerned about RF connectors that disengage from the PCB in high shock and vibration applications can employ a connector with a built-in locking feature; the MHF brand I LK Micro RF Coaxial Connector and Wire Harness from I-PEX is designed with a built-in lock that keeps the connector in place.

This removes any requirement for measures such as adhesives (for example, epoxy or silicone) to ensure productivity and reliability. This connector has the same features as the tiny MHF I Connector, which is used to connect antennas to radios, and for testing radios, while maximizing performance within minimal space. Because of the tiny size of the connector, engineers have greater flexibility in designing their PCBs. This connector supports many of the new transmission standards, including Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth®, GPS, M2M, IoT. SigFox, WiSUN, NB-IoT and LoRa. It is suitable for high shock and vibration applications, particularly in the automotive, airline and drone industries. The MHF I LK Connectors are available in a variety of cable sizes and lengths: O.D. 0.81 mm, 1.13 mm, 1.32 mm, 1.37 mm and 1.80 mm.


I-PEX Connectors (a division of Dai-ichi Seiko, located in Tokyo, Japan) produces very small, high-performance connectors that provide the foundation for high-data-rate and high-frequency applications.
