Need a High Density RF Solution? Check Out SV Microwave's New FeatherMate Connector Line

SV Microwave's new FeatherMate connector series combines ultra-low mating forces with high frequency performance to bring you a revolutionary low cost RF alternative.

The new FeatherMate RF interconnect system from SV Microwave combines a high density (.100" center-to-center spacing) 40+ GHz multiport concept with a zero disengagement force mating mechanism. Direct connection to board trace, solder-free board mounts and small diameter coax cable connectors are a few of the configurations available. Applications include test boards and anywhere a high density, low-force connection is needed. Get more bandwidth and signal density in your application without worrying about destructive demating forces with SV Microwave’s FeatherMate!
