A 2.92-mm right-angle connector from W. L. Gore & Associates features a non-bifurcated swept contact design for use with low-loss microwave coaxial cable qualified for 32-GHz spaceflight applications. The ZQA connector incorporates the physical advantages of box right-angle designs—i.e., low profile and compact size—while maintaining electrical performance comparable with conventional straight connectors. The internal swept right-angle configuration replaces a previous two-piece bifurcated concept. The device features a robust design with superior impedance control, and maintains a low reflection path as the signal transitions from cable through connector. It adheres to IEEE 287 standards for precision coaxial connectors.
