So I came across a new thing. Coaxial pogo pin connectors, ostensibly intended for high frequency applications. See page 24 of this document. They look like this:
I’d like to try this out for an external bluetooth antenna, or other applications, but I can’t find this particular company at mouser where I normally shop, nor can I find any similar products. Have you guys seen these things before? Do they have a specific name, that I could search for that might yield better results?
can’t find them elsewhere at the moment, no. Nor do I see how to get them from CCP directly.
Of note, these could be really useful for Blade Detect stuff:
Very interesting stuff, but parts that can’t be found are difficult to use…
Yeah, I’m not sure how those are supposed to work. Wasn’t clear to me what part carries the signal, or what’s going on mechanically.
It looks like it’s just what it says. A center pin and a shroud, isolated. So you have 2 paths.
Made a little more sense after I stared at it for a while.
