MMCX Cables & Adapters
MMCX (micro-miniature coaxial) are a smaller version of MCX. MMCX connectors have a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360-degree rotation and usually have a 50 Ω impedance. They reliably offer broadband capability from DC to 6 GHz.
The small diameter enables further miniaturization of the hardware of the wireless network. They are designed to press-fit into the jack on a miniPCI card or router-board, with a snap on / snap off coupling mechanism for micro-miniature connection. The lock-snap system of coupling allows for a 360-degree rotation around the contact. They are mainly used with antenna cabling of smaller diameters.
The MMCX is similar to MCX, but it’s only a lot smaller. The connector can be crimped onto RG 174, RG 316 or RG 178 coaxial cables. These cables are thin, flexible and comfortable. The connectors can withstand high vibration environments without disconnecting or damage. They can easily and quickly be swapped without a high risk of damage. Connectors are mainly made of brass or stainless steel with gold plating on the contacts and nickel plating on the soldering tips.
MMCX connectors are available in straight through, and right angle connectors, which make them convenient for flexibility. MMCX connectors and cable are small, lightweight and flexible, making them favored in small, handheld and portable devices. The MMCX range of applications include:
• Computer peripheral devices
• External GPS antennas
• In-ear monitors
• PDAs and GPS receivers
• Video transmitters for First-Person View (FPV)
• Wi-Fi mini-PCI cards
• Wireless audio
• Wireless internet TV
MMCX jacks lock-snap that enables rotation at contact, its micro-miniature scale, flexibility, and comfort is ideal for use in a variety of areas.
MMCX conforms to the European CECC 22000 specification.
