A hermetically sealed connector, suitable for use in the construction of a launcher for the transfer of energy from a coaxial cable to an integrated circuit, comprising an annular body defining a bore in which is disposed an annular insulator which in turn supports a central electrical contact, said body defining an external thread of relatively large diameter adapted for the connection of a coaxial connector thereto with the central contact of the connector in communication with the central contact, and having an annular extension defining a thread of relatively small diameter; an annular header defining a thread by which the header is connected to the body extension and a thread of relatively large diameter by which the header may be attached to a structure; and a hermetic seal means housed within said header in sealing engagement with said body in said header, said seal means including an elongate conductor extending from said central contact through said seal means in sealing engagement therewith.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
