What is an RF Connector?

RF connectors are a type of electrical connector meant to work at multi-megahertz range radio frequencies often used with coaxial cables to maintain the shielding that coaxial cables offer. RF connectors offer a fastening mechanism and springs for a low resistance electric contact.

Types of RF connectors

There are several different kinds of RF connectors at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including type, style / orientation, cable type, impedance, termination and packaging type, among others. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.

RF connectors from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a wide range of RF connectors from several manufacturers that can be used for your circuits. By going through the selection you will find the right RF connectors and adapters including SMA RF connectors, RF cable connectors and other coaxial (coax) cable connectors. Once you decide if you need BNC, MCX/MMCX, SMT/SSMT, SMA/SSMA, SMB/SSMB, SMC/SSMC or TNC Connectors or RF Adapters, you will be able to choose from their technical attributes and your search results will be narrowed to match your specific RF connector application needs.

We deal with several manufacturers such as Bomar Interconnect, Johnson Components or TE Connectivity, among others. You can easily refine your RF connector product search results by clicking your preferred RF connector brand from the list of manufacturers below.
