Amphenol RF Type F Connectors

Amphenol RF Type F Connectors are high-performance, cost-effective connectors compliant with a 3/8-32 thread specification. These connectors provide -30dB return loss at 1Ghz while still accepting 0.022" to 0.042" diameter conductors. Amphenol RF Type F Connectors feature a threaded coupling mechanism and are ideal for cable television (CATV), set top boxes, cable modems, and more.


  • Truly cylindrical coaxial contact provides superior RF performance and excellent insertion/withdrawal characteristics

  • 30dB return loss to 1GHz ensures a high-performance specification
  • Multiple PCB-mount packages: surface mount, edge mount, right angle, and straight


  • Cable assemblies
  • Head end equipment
  • Set-top boxes
  • CATV
  • High-speed cable modems
  • CIMs
  • Hybrid fiber coax (HFC) networks


  • 75Ω impedance
  • RF leakage @ 1GHz
  • -40°C to 140°C operating temperature range
