Micro-miniature connectors serve high-frequency applications
Stephen LawElectronics Interconnect connection connector micro-miniature solutions
SAMTEC SMPM micro-miniature connection solutions come with a maximum VSWR of 1.40 and frequency range of dc to 65GHz. Devices are suitable in high-frequency applications where push-on coupling is preferred due to space limitations or blind-mate is required. Single-port and multi-port solutions are available. Multi-port ganged cable assemblies (GC47 & GPPC Series) use a .047″ low-loss flexible cable and an optimized latching system. Eight and ten port configurations on .140″ (3.56 mm) pitch are released. Additional configurations are in development. The multi-port board-to-board system (GPPB Series) provides three board height options – 5.33 mm (.210″), 8.31 mm (.327″), and 12.70 mm (.500″) – with full detent or smooth bore retention features. Cable-to-board, single-port SMPM solutions are available on .047″ (RF047-A Series), .086″ (RF086 Series) and Samtec-optimized 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.
