The world's smallest radio frequency switch connector, the SWG, has been unveiled by electronics and ceramic components manufacturer Murata Electronics.
Measuring only 0.9 mm in height, the manufacturer claims the component boasts an expanded frequency range that will remain reliable for the length of the product's life.
In addition to offering a better frequency range than is currently on offer in the industry, the connector measures only 2mm by 2mm and so saves printed circuit board space.
Murata product manager Gerry Hubers said: "Murata's ability to reduce component size while still providing a high quality, reliable test point, is demonstrated in the advanced SWG switch connector series.
"The miniaturised connector, coupled with its numerous design benefits, makes it a perfect choice for engineers looking to reliably test their advanced wireless products."
Murata recently brought an even smaller component to market in the form of the film-type chip inductor, measuring 0.6x0.3x0.3mm, capable for use on high-frequency circuits and small portable equipment.
