Multi-connector range for CoaXPress applications

May 10, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Cambridge Connectors's CXP-Multi-Connector is a precision 6-GHz 1.0/2.3 Stackable Multiport Connector system that meets the requirements of the newly JIIA ratified CoaXPress (CXP) specification for use in High Speed Image and Data Transmission.

Engineered for CoaXPress applications, the CXP-Multi-Connector range meets the needs of the Machine Vision industry, providing a small form factor stackable multi-port connector system which can operate in high speed, high definition video applications and provides polarised inter-connection capabilities.

The system comprises two connector body widths (13 and 9 mm) secured together with precision press-fit links providing an array of connector ports with precise pitch separations of 9 and 11 mm. A multiway connector is formed with 'n' down-connection ports plus one high speed up-connection port. Standard configurations are anticipated to provide 2 ports, 4+1 ports and 6+1 ports but the flexibility of the system means that a wide variety are available pre-configured by Cambridge Connectors. Being an important feature of the CXP Standard, each port can incorporate a light pipe to display identification or status data; straight and right angle versions are available. The secure latching mechanism, compatible with standard 1.0/2.3 connectors, provides high connection integrity with a simple push/pull operation.
