Fairview Microwave has introduced a complete line of mini-DIN 4.1/9.5 adapters intended for use in applications requiring low passive intermodulation performance such as cell sites or indoor/outdoor DAS.
Mini-DIN adapters used in RF applications are similar in design to 7/16 DIN connectors, but have a more compact body and offer more precise electrical performance. Fairview Microwave’s 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN adapters offer VSWR performance of 1.25:1 up to 6 GHz. Third-order PIM is guaranteed to be less than -160 dBc using 2 tones at 20 Watts. These low PIM mini-DIN adapters are available in male and female combinations of between-series interfaces for each adapter type including 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN to 7/16 DIN and 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN to Type-N. Two non-low PIM versions are also available.
The adapters are constructed with tri-alloy plated brass bodies and silver plated Beryllium copper center contacts, allowing low IMD and low attenuation. Additional applications include portable sweep testing, telecom installations, wireless infrastructure, OEM in-rack RF routing, in-building systems, and land mobile radio communications. www.fairviewmicrowave.com
