Amphenol RF expands its SMA offerings

Amphenol RF has announced the expansion of its high frequency SMA connector series with extended frequency cable mount connectors supporting up to 34 GHz.

With a lightweight, compact and vibration proof design, these connectors are intended for a variety of applications including 5G wireless infrastructure, military, RFID and radar systems.

These new cable connectors are available in a straight solder plug configuration and are optimised for various conformable and semi-rigid cables. A threaded coupling mechanism ensures uniform contact of the outer conductors which enables the SMA connector to minimize reflections and attenuation at higher frequencies. This allows for a high degree of mechanical strength and durability.

SMA high frequency connectors are machined with brass bodies and beryllium copper contacts, both of which feature a cost-effective gold over high-phosphorous nickel plating ensuring optimal conductivity for the life of the connector. They also incorporate a stainless steel retaining ring and coupling nut, and PTFE insulator supporting temperatures up to 165C.
