SV Microwave Released the FeatherMate Application Note

Light as a Feather to Flock Together! Check out SV Microwave's new FeatherMate RF interconnect system that 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 available. Ideal for high density, low-force applications. Get more bandwidth and signal density in your application without worrying about destructive demating forces with SV Microwave's FeatherMate!
