Samtec’s SMPM micro-miniature connectors suit high-frequency applications

Samtec now offers a full line of SMPM solutions with a maximum VSWR of 1.40 and frequency range of DC to 65 GHz. SMPM micro-miniature connectors suit high-frequency applications where push-on coupling is preferred owing to space limitations or where blind-mate is required. Single-port and multi-port solutions are available.

Multi-port ganged cable assemblies (GC47 & GPPC Series) use a .047 in low-loss flexible cable and an optimised latching system. Eight and 10 port configurations on .140 in (3.56 mm) pitch are released. Additional configurations are in development.

The multi-port board-to-board system (GPPB Series) offers three board height options – 5.33 mm (.210 in), 8.31 mm (.327in), and 12.70 mm (.500 in) – with full detent or smooth bore retention features.

Cable-to-board, single-port SMPM solutions are available on .047 in (RF047-A Series), .086 in (RF086 Series) and Samtec-optimised low-loss flexible cable (RF23C Series) with optional End 2 connectors. SMPM board connectors provide surface mount, edge mount, and straight or right-angle through-hole terminations.

Samtec offers a full line of off-the-shelf products for microwave and millimetre wave applications from 18 GHz to 110 GHz. The precision RF product family supports next generation technology advancements in wireless communication, automotive, radar, SATCOM, aerospace, defence, and test & measurement.
