Tyco Electronics (TE) is introducing one of the smallest Pico switching coax connectors in the market, measuring 2x2x0.9mm, with 0.4mm self-alignment. This miniature Pico switching coax connector allows for integration into small mobile devices. To facilitate automatic testing, the connector also features a relatively large self-alignment, which provides a larger tolerance to position the test probe.
Coax RF (radio frequency) connectors with an integrated switch are widely used for accurate testing of a mobile device's radio output. When a test plug is inserted on the top of the connector, the antenna path is diverted from the mobile device's internal antenna to the test plug, enabling testing of the accuracy of the mobile device's signal.
