SMC Connectors are screw-on connectors that operate up to 10 GHz. These connectors are a threaded version of Snap-On SMB connectors. This screw-on mechanism permits a vibration-proof connection suitable for semi-permanent connections and for use in mobile equipment with low VSWR requirements. The SMC connectors are ideal for antennas, telecommunications and instrumentation applications.
