MATE-AX Miniaturized Automotive Coaxial Connectors

MATE-AX Miniaturized Automotive Coaxial Connector

TE Connectivity’s (TE) MATE-AX miniaturized automotive coaxial connector system provides advanced automotive data transmission performance, supporting up to 9GHz. The MATE-AX system features an extensive portfolio offering a wide range of connector types and sizes to support all types of RF-based applications. Offering a higher packaging density, MATE-AX terminals can support up to 75% reduction in PCB footprint and by using existing wire types, it enables flexible integration into existing coaxial architecture.



  • Supports existing cable types: automotive coax cable, comparable to RTK-031/RG-174
  • Sealed and non-sealed designs
  • Supports a bandwidth of 9 GHz and up to 15 GHz on optimized versions
  • Increased RF performance (beyond FAKRA-compliant connectors)
  • Fully protected terminals
  • Lower mating force/compatible with high pin count
  • High retention force (min. 75 N)
  • High encryption effectiveness (min. 130 N)
  • Proven seal design, LV214/USCAR compliant
  • Design of standard terminals and connectors – contact contact protection, connector adaptation above the housing
  • Straight and angled versions: pin header/housing/terminal
  • Design of the terminals according to existing architecture
  • Use of higher bandwidth for larger data volumes
  • Extensive portfolio of pin headers for all vehicle applications
