Pasternack Solderless Vertical Launch Connectors

Pasternack's new series of vertical launch connectors consists of 12 models that provide VSWR as low as 1.3:1 and maximum operating frequency of up to 50 GHz, depending on the model. These launches boast a reusable clamp attachment and can be used for microstrip or stripline. They are offered in male and female versions, covering 2.4mm, 2.92mm and SMA interfaces, and all models provide solderless installation. These removable vertical launches feature a stainless steel outer conductor, gold-plated beryllium copper center contact and Polyetherimide (PEI) insulators. They are ideal for high-speed backplanes, signal integrity measurements, semiconductor verification boards, multi-channel tests and SERDES applications.

"The VSWR of these new vertical launch PCB connectors minimizes the performance tradeoff compared to end launches. This allows our customers to take advantage of additional PCB real estate and allows for easier access for their test cables," said Dan Birch, Product Manager.

Pasternack's new solderless vertical launch connectors are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity. For detailed information on these products, please visit
