Solderless PCB Connectors

Rosenberger provides a wide product range of solderless PCB connectors for challenging test & measure­ment demands and for frequencies up to 110 GHz. These PCB connectors can easily be assembled by using screws. Standard screws are included, optional screws for thicker PCBs are available on request.


Product Portfolio

  • Economic solderless PCB connectors for standard applications with frequencies up to 70 GHz
  • High-performance solderless PCB connectors for frequencies up to 110 GHz
  • Test PCBs, assembled with two PCB connectors

Economic Solderless PCB Connectors
For a variety of standard applications Rosenberger has developed cost-effective, economic solderless PCB connectors. These straight connector types are designed to provide low return loss values for frequencies up to 70 GHz.

Standard screws for a PCB thickness of maximum 2.5 mm are included, optional screws for thicker PCBs are available on request. Their mode-free design allows very good RF performance for standard applications in the fields of test and measurement, chip testing fixtures, board characterization or communication industries.

  • RPC-1.85, RPC-2.40, RPC-2.92 and RPC-3.50 interfaces available
  • For frequencies up to 70 GHz
  • Cost-effective connectors

High-Performance Solderless PCB Connectors
For high-performance applications Rosenberger has developed solderless PCB mount connectors. These 30° angle connectors are designed to provide low return loss values for frequencies up to 110 GHz – for single-layer or multi-layer printed circuit boards where the microwave layer is on the top.

Solderless PCB mount connectors from Rosenberger can be easily mounted by using screws and prepositioning dowel pins. Screws for a PCB thickness of maximum 1.5 mm are included. The dimensions are expandable by using longer screws. Their mode-free design allows excellent RF performance for high perfor­mance applications in ultra-high frequency test and measurement applications, applications where minimum radiation and coupling to adjacent circuitry is mandatory or test fixtures and board characterization.

  • RPC-1.00, RPC-1.35, RPC-1.85 and RPC-2.92 interfaces available
  • For frequencies up to 110 GHz
  • Prepositioning enforced by dowel pins
  • Clamping mechanism accommodates a wide range of board thicknesses while providing a continuous ground connection between contact area and circuit board

Test PCBs
For high-performance solderless PCB connectors Rosenberger offers test PCBs also for sale and for loan. The test PCBs are assembled with two solderless connectors with the same interface.
