65 GHz 1.85mm RF Termination Loads from Pasternack

New 1.85mm Terminations / Loads Capable of 1 Watt Now Available

65 GHz RF terminations / loads up to 65 GHz often used in applications such as power limiting, impedance matching and signal leveling inside RF test systems, introduced. Pasternack’s new 1.85mm RF terminations are rated to 65 GHz at 1 Watt and have a VSWR of 1.3:1 to 40 GHz and 1.65:1 to 65 GHz. The 1.85mm load connector interface, also referred to as a “V Connector®”, is widely used in satellite communications (VSAT) equipment, point-to-point radios, WiGig applications and millimeter-wave radars due it’s compact size, threaded design and ability to operate at extremely high frequencies.

The new 1.85mm 65 GHz terminators / loads are constructed with stainless steel bodies and Beryllium Copper (BeCu) contacts making them highly durable and able to withstand harsh environments without sacrificing electrical performance. Commercially available 1.85mm terminations / loads routinely only perform to 40 GHz or 50 GHz, making these new Pasternack high frequency 1.85mm 65 GHz termination / load versions a more desirable option for use in industrial, aerospace and military-grade systems.
