The 15K101-40ME4 connector can be used as either:

  1. a low-cost, SMD, coax, point-of-entry to a PCB
  2. a switch for temporarily disconnecting the on-board connection to the PCB to allow external-only testing of RF functions.

Micro-RF test switch Information

  • For the verification of antenna/circuit performance in any kind of small device
  • Frequency range up to 6 GHz
  • Very small : 1.8 mm x 1.9 mm, height 1.5 mm
  • Just 3.4 mm² required space – 50% space reduction on PCBs
  • Lead-free solder process
  • Robust design

Useful applications for the 15K101-40ME4 include prototype boards where installation of a switch connector can isolate portions of a circuit and enable troubleshooting. For example, inject a signal through one connector and test on another – thereby verifying performance of individual circuits. These "test points” can migrate into production for easy troubleshooting in the manufacturing process. In the normally closed position, the Rosenberger 15K101-40ME4 has only 0.1dB of insertion loss.

A popular application is as a bypass for on-board antennas. The switch allows the use on an on-board antenna for most applications but when more gain is required, an external antenna can be plugged in to bypass the on-board antenna. See RFMW for more information.
