Non-Magnetic RF Interconnects

Non-Magnetic RF Interconnects

High-quality non-magnetic interconnects are essential for optimal safety and accuracy in medical and aerospace applications. Samtec offers non-magnetic interconnects for all machined RF products.

While non-magnetic is not an off-the-shelf solution, dimensions and footprint specifications are identical to our standard products. This enables boards to be reused if device upgrades to true non-magnetic are required— saving you time and money.

Below is an overview of our most common non-magnetic product solutions. To order please contact our RF Technical Group, as compatible materials must be specified. Other non-magnetic RF interconnects are also available. Please contact our RF Technical Group for more information or to request a sample.
