Abstract : This abstract discloses a connector between a stripline circuit and an coaxial conductor disposed at a right angle. The connector provides a low VSWR at relatively high frequencies and is attachable without soldering or separation of the circuit layers and with access from only one side of a first one of the circuit ground plane plates. This plate and an adjacent first outer dielectric circuit board have openings exposing a conductive stripe on a center board. The second plate is exposed by smaller openings in an adjacent second outer board and the center boards, and the connector has a body extending from the coaxial conductor to the second plate. The body has an outer conductor flatly and axially contacting the second plate and having a flange fitted to the smaller openings. The body has a tab extended radially from a central conductor and outwardly of the flange to engage the stripe. The body has a dielectric disposed between its conductors and extending axially between its ends and radially about the tab to the flange periphery. A dielectric ring is disposed about the flange filling the opening in the first board, and a flexible, conductive ring extends over the dielectric ring and between the flange and the first plate. The connector has a clamp ring axially engaging the flexible ring and the flange and secured to the second plate by screws extending through the rings. Patents. (aw)
