Amphenol RF Expands its SMP Connector Family

Amphenol RF has announced the expansion of the SMP product line – a high-frequency, subminiature board-to-board solution – to include several new bullet adapters and a straight cable plug. This connector series is designed for blind mate applications with a variety of board spacing and package size requirements.

The additional SMP bullet adapters feature a straight plug to plug (with female, socket contacts) in-series configuration and are available in lengths of 6.45, 6.96, 9.90, 13.16, 14.5 and 22.4 mm. These 50-ohm bullets are constructed with gold plated beryllium copper and are designed to compensate for both radial and axial misalignment.

The new straight cable plug is optimized for RG-178 and RG-196 cable and joins the previously released right-angle version. This connector features the popular push-on coupling style.

The SMP series operates from DC to 26.5 GHz making this product family ideal for applications that require a high data rate transmission, such as broadband, instrumentation and telecommunications applications. For additional information, click here.
