Development of SMB Coaxial Connector (FAKRA) for Automotive Devices to Add to our Lineup of "VC Series / VC-2 Series" Connectors

 We are pleased to announce the development of FAKRA coaxial connector for automotive devices to add to our lineup of "VC Series (plug for PWBs) / VC-2 Series (for cable jacks/cable plugs)" connectors.
The "VC Series / VC-2 Series" is an SMB (Sub Miniature Type B) based coaxial connector employing a molded locking system for automotive coaxial connectors. This product is used to connect car navigation systems and GPS antennas, TV antennas and radio antennas, or for rear-camera connection. It is employed as the standard choice by European automakers, and the market is expanding also in the U.S. In addition, we have succeeded in further miniaturizing this product in response to market needs, and reducing the parts count contributes to improved assembly workability.
We have assembled a wide variety of PWB-mounted and cable type SMB coaxial connectors, which you can choose according to your needs.
