By Amphenol RF Division 96
RF transceivers are at the forefront of the trend to supplement wireless communications for medical implantable devices. These devices not only include cardiac products such as pacemakers, but also extend to glucose insulin monitors for diabetes management and vascular blood pressure monitors.
Amphenol RF now manufactures coaxial connectors for use in non-magnetic environments, such as near MRI machines, satellites, and communication systems. Non-magnetic coaxial connectors are used for carrying 50 Ω RF signals within the magnetic field of MRI equipment where a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is required. These connectors are manufactured under strict quality procedures throughout the entire production process to ensure that each connector will not produce image artifacts during MRI scans. All products are 100 percent tested for magnetism prior to shipping and are available in the following interfaces: SMB, MCX and MMCX.
