December 5, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Dec. 5, 2016 – Amphenol RF has announced its SMPM product line featuring interconnects, connectors, cable connectors, PCB connectors and bullet adapters.
SMPM cable connectors are available in straight and right-angle configurations, for 0.047-in. and 0.086-in. diameter semi-rigid and conformable cables, as well as RG-178 flexible coax. The connectors are made from beryllium copper or brass with gold plating. SMPM PCB connectors are also machined from brass and plated gold for solderability and electrical performance. They are available in various configurations, including surface mount, through-hole leg, or edge mount terminations. When used in conjunction with SMPM bullet adapters, a minimum PCB spacing of 8.65 mm can be achieved, says the company. SMPM connectors are designed to operate in high frequency board to board applications up to 65 GHz, or with cable solutions optimized to meet the frequency limits of the cable, it adds. They have a snap-on mating style similar to the SMP, and are suitable for various precision and miniaturized applications.
