Connector Type
   Connector Type       
   Your choices are...         
   1/4'' Phone Plug / Jack       The diameter of the jack is 0.25 in. Phone jacks are essentially connectors used in audio systems: audio cables, amplifiers, speakers, among other applications. 
   1/8'' Phone Plug / Jack       The diameter of the jack is 0.125 in. Phone jacks are essentially connectors used in audio systems: audio cables, amplifiers, speakers, etc. The diameter of the jack is 0.125 in. 
   3.5 mm       3.5 mm connectors are metric devices that derive their name from the inside diameter of their outer conductor. They are rated for frequencies up to 34 GHz. 
   Banana Plug       Banana plugs or connectors are slender, slightly bulged metal prongs that are attached to the stripped end of a speaker cable by a setscrew in a plastic or metal sleeve. Banana plugs can be inserted into a special jack that sits almost flush with the component's surface or into a binding post (see below); the slight bulge keeps the plug firmly in place. A dual-prong version (dual banana plug) is also available. 
   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. 
   DisplayPort       The interface is primarily used to connect a video source to a display device such as a computer monitor, and it can also carry audio, USB and other forms of data. 
   DVI       Digital video interface (DVI) connectors are used to transfer digital, audio or video signals. 
   HDMI       High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a standard digital audio/video interface protocol. 
   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). 
   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. 
   Type F       Type F connectors have a screw-type coupling and frequency range up to 1.5 GHz. Applications include CATV, TV and antennas. 
   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. 
   Twinax       Twinax connectors are used with twinaxial cables for balanced low-level and high-sensitivity circuits. Twinax connectors feature polarized key and keyway construction as well as threaded coupling. 
   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. 
   XLR Connector       XLR microphone-type connectors; three-pin; balanced. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized or proprietary connector.

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.
   Frequency Range       This is the range of frequencies through which the connector is designed to function according to the design. 
   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.
   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.
