RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

APC-7 connector - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hello,
does a APC-7 connector exist, which I can solder on a PCB ? If so, where can I buy it ?

Hi
I purchased some APC-7 to N type adapters from a US supplier about 3 months ago. I will look up the email and get back to you with url data.
They advertize on eBay, so a search for APC-7 might turn them up.
QRX.

Hi
Check this source out.
I have purchased APC-7 to N transitions from them.
Delivery was quick and prices not too salty.

many people make apc7 adapters; for one, see sm electronics http://www.smelectronicsllc.com

apc7 to pcb is harder to find; maybe amphenol?

i'm curious, i've never seen a 7mm soldered to a pcb; why?

I guess because the purists who came up with the design for this high-precision coax connector would curl their toes at the idea of using them for anything worse than a -20dB reflection loss application like a transit to microstrip.
That suddenly makes me wonder: what is the best S11 that I might achieve for a coax to microstrip transition? Anyone?
