The development of the method for strain reliev- ing RF connectors described here was driven by reliability concerns. Few "off the shelf' connectors exist today that provide strain relief at the interface between RF connector center conductors, and the circuits they interconnect to. The concept described in this paper was developed for a type "N" connec- tor, however the approach could be adapted to most RF connector styles.
