Pasternack outs low frequency SMP series connectors

Pasternack Enterprises Inc. has expanded its line of low frequency SMP connectors that is geared for applications requiring operating frequencies of 8GHz or less. The devices are aimed at high density applications where the benefits of a small RF connector are used, added the company.

Common uses for the low frequency SMP connectors include blind-mate interconnect systems and miniaturized high density coaxial modules, such as connecting to a small PCB. Low frequency 8GHz SMP connectors carry the same "small-footprint" advantages as their higher-frequency counterparts, but are a more cost effective option when a 40GHz connector is not needed. Cost savings can range from 50-75 per cent when compared to standard SMP connectors, boasted Pasternack.

The SMP connectors are typically attached to cables assemblies using RG178, RG405 and 0.047in diameter semi-rigid cable. The connectors use beryllium copper (BeCu) and Kovar alloy at critical contact points in their designs, while brass and stainless steel are used in non-contact areas. The lower-frequency SMP versions are also compatible and fully mate-able with Corning Gilbert GPO connectors.

The SMP connectors from Pasternack are available now.
