The purpose of this standard is to present minimum performance requirements for those precision connectors used at RF, microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies. It introduces the performance requirements needed to standardize precision pin and socket type connectors. The standard presents updated test methods to utilize automatic vector network analyzers (VNAs) along with current state-of-the-art concepts in connector technology, and displays specification values from individual connector types in a connector summary table. A very important utility of this standard is that it serves as a user's guide. One unique feature of this standard is that it embodies the general requirements, definitions, measuring methods, and other pertinent information into one document for all eight standard connector types while making use of the "detail specifications" information from each connector type for standardization into separate Annexes.The scope of this standard is to specify coaxial connectors for precision electrical measurements for use at RF, microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies. Current state-of-the-art coaxial connectors are covered by the Standard.
