Connector Type
   Connector Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Automotive Connector       Connectors mainly used by the automotive industry. 
   BNC       Bayonet Neil-Councilman (BNC) connectors were designed for military applications, but are used widely in video and RF applications to 2 GHz. BNC connectors have a slotted outer conductor and a plastic dielectric that causes increasing losses at higher frequencies. BNC connectors are usable above 4 GHz as long as the slots radiate signals; however, these devices may not be mechanically stable to 10 GHz. Both 50Ω and 75Ω BNC connectors are available. BNC connectors are also known as bayonet navy connectors or baby Neil connectors. 
   Mini-UHF       Mini-UHF connectors are a miniature version of the original UHF connector. They feature a threaded coupling mechanism for reliable mating. Mini-UHF connectors are designed for use in cellular mobile telephone systems where size, weight and cost are critical. With crimp cable termination for low installation costs, these connectors provide excellent RF performance in applications through 2.5 GHz. 
   Hospital Grade / Medical       Conforms to rigorous safety standards associated with official hospital grade certification; testing includes prevention of inadvertent plug disengagement from outlet and increased shock and impact ratings. 
   TNC       Threaded Neil-Concelman (TNC) connectors are similar in size to BNC connectors but feature a threaded coupling nut for applications that require performance to 11 GHz. TNC connectors are durable, reliable devices that are widely used in the cellular and mobile communication industry for equipment cabling and antenna interfaces. 
   Micro Connector and Nano Connector       Microconnectors and nanoconnectors exhibit contacts with a pitch of 0.05 in. (micro) and 0.025 in. (nano), respectively.  
   RCA       RCA connectors are round, press-on connectors commonly used for consumer-grade audio and composite video connections. In most recent home stereo equipment, the jacks are color-coded as follows: red (audio-right), black or white (audio-left) and yellow (composite video). 
   SMC       Subminiature C (SMC) connectors are 50Ω or 75Ω devices with a frequency range of 7-10 GHz. They are smaller than SMA connectors, but can accept flexible cables with diameters as large as 3.17 mm or 0.125 in. 
   SMB       Subminiature-N (SMB) connectors are snap-mount connectors that are available either in 50Ω or 75Ω impedances.  They are used for frequencies from DC to 4GHz. 
   SMA       Subminiature-A (SMA) connectors are intended for use on semi-rigid cables in components. They directly interface the cable dielectric without air gaps. They are not intended for permanent connections. 
   Rectangular Connectors, Heavy Duty       Heavy-duty rectangular connectors are designed to accommodate large electrical loads and direct signals under a multitude of operating conditions. 
   Type N       Type N connectors include an integrated gasket to protect against environmental ingress and create an air gap between the center and the outer conductor. They primarily have 50Ω impedance, but 75Ω versions for CATV, are available. 
   USB Connector       Universal serial bus (USB) connectors support USB standard ports. USB is an external bus standard that supports data transfer rates of 12 Mbps in version 1.1 and 480 Mbps in version 2.0. A single USB port can be used to connect up to 127 peripheral devices, such as mice, modems and keyboards. USB also supports both plug-and-play and hot plugging. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized or proprietary connector. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Coupling / Adapter
   Coupling / Adapter       The device is a coupling or adapter. A coupling connects to another connector, or connects to a panel-mounted base. An adapter can connect two cables with different-style connectors. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Specifications
   Gender       
   Your choices are...         
   Male / Plug       Male connectors or plugs are often referred to as header or free connectors. In coaxial RF connectors, the plug is normally the movable portion and is usually attached to a cable or removable sub-assembly. In shell-type, multiple-contact connectors, the plug usually contains the socket contacts and is mounted on the "hot" (rack) side of the system. Plugs mate with receptacles, jacks, outlets, etc. 
   Female / Jack       Female connectors or jacks are connecting devices into which plugs are inserted to make circuit connections. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Geometry       
   Your choices are...         
   Straight       The connector does not bend. 
   Right Angle       The connector is bent at a right angle. 
   Other       Other unlisted geometry. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Performance The maximum current or maximum voltage defined by an approval organization may differ from the supplier's maximums. In many cases, the product can be used safely at an unapproved level. Check with the supplier for specific usage details.
   Number of Contacts       The number of contacts is the number of conductive elements that mate with a corresponding element to provide an electrical path. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Contact Size (AWG)       An electrical contact is the termination of an electrical wire in the connector's pin or socket. Contact size, also referred to as termination size, is the maximum diameter wire the connector can accommodate.    Wire size is measured according to the American Wire Gauge (AWG) standard. In North America, wire area is measured by the American Wire Gauge (AWG) to indicate conductor size. The AWG is used to measure certain conductors including copper. The higher the AWG number the thinner the wire. This is because AWG stems from a measurement that represented the number of times the copper wire was run through a wire machine that reduced the diameter of the wire. Thus 24-gauge wire went through the machine 6 more times than 18-gauge wire. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Voltage Rating       Voltage rating is the maximum operating voltage. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Current Rating       Current rating is the maximum, recommended, continuous flow of electrical current. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
