Firsts in Coaxial Connector Designs
The Pathfinder Coaxial Connectors

Cambridge Electronic Industries offers a vast range of precision 75 Ohm coaxial connectors, including some world-firsts and interesting connector functionality.

Cambridge Electronic Industries have been designing coaxial connectors in the UK for the last 40 years. The company is well known in the Broadcast and Machine Vision sectors for offering a flexible service and low-cost product designs to suit the application. The company is known for pushing the boundaries of design in the coaxial world and creating world firsts.


An early first was the ability to shine light through a coaxial connector, known as their Pathfinder range. This application has been used by many of the major broadcast manufacturers to provide an indication light of operating and open ports, in their equipment, which aids the users in a darker environment of a studio or outdoor broadcast vehicle.

The stacking system connectors allow the user to have a bank of coaxial interface option, arranged within a single connection block. This feature allows the engineer to maximise their design with the minimum profile between interfaces.

The first pick and place and reflowable coaxial connectors were designed to allow contract manufacturers to automate the manufacturing process, speeding up placement and soldering time and increasing quality and reliability.


As part of their core range, Cambridge Electronic Industries, offer a wide range of BNC, Micro BNC coaxial connectors which work to the full speed of 12G-SDi and CXP-12. All the 12GHz connectors work at lower frequencies of 6GHz and 3GHz and have improved electrical performance when compared to a connector designed specifically for the lower frequencies. The DIN 1.0/2.3 connectors range have a maximum frequency of 6G-SDi and CXP-6, with these connectors working at 3GHz as well.


It is a common misconception that the higher frequency connector will cost more than the lower frequency version. In fact, Cambridge Electronic Industries offers full 12GHz or 6GHz for a lower cost than 3GHz, making this a cost-effective option for their customers, whilst providing superior electrical performance and future proof capabilities for your design.
