Amphenol RF expands pre-configured cable assembly portfolio

Amphenol RF is expanding its pre-configured cable assembly portfolio with SMA assemblies on low loss LMR-100A cable, manufactured by its sister division, Amphenol Times Microwave.

The full Amphenol solution uses the company’s SMA connector interface which features a threaded coupling mechanism for secure and reliable connection which complements the low-loss nature of the LMR-100A cable type. LMR-100A cable can be used to easily replace RG-174 and RG-316 in wireless communication systems that require a routed low loss RF cable.

These SMA cable assemblies are designed with brass bodies and contacts and offer excellent electrical performance up to 12.4 GHz and are available in a straight-to-straight plug (male) configuration in a variety of standard lengths up to three meters with custom lengths available upon request.

These cables have been designed to operate from -40°C to 85°C and are engineered with a foil shield in addition to the standard braided shield for extra shielding capabilities.

Low-loss SMA assemblies are well suited for GPS navigation, WLAN, and connecting to an RF antenna. These cables join a robust collection of SMA cable assemblies on most industry-standard cable types that can support existing and emerging technologies across markets.
