Apr. 27, 2018 – Amphenol says its high frequency SMA end launch plug offers VSWR performance up to 26.5 GHz with optimized end launch design.
Like the high frequency SMA end launch jacks, the plug offers VSWR performance up to 26.5 GHz and features an optimized end launch design with traditional slide-on mounting legs, Amphenol describes. The 50 ohm connector features a brass body and beryllium copper contact, both of which are gold plated. It also features a PTFE insulator designed to withstand high temperatures, says Amphenol. The connector series includes through-hole and traditional edge-launch jack options for a variety of PCB thicknesses, in addition to captivated 0.010-inch and 0.015-inch diameter centre contacts that can accommodate different substrate widths.
