Bomar New SMP Interface System with Superior RF Performance

Bomar Interconnect Products expanded their RF connector offering with the introduction of the new SMP Interface System. The robust, multi-functional system is commonly employed in a wide range of subminiature, high-frequency coaxial cable-to-board and board-to-board applications. Engineered to securely mate and maintain performance through 40 GHz, the 50-Ohm subminiature devices additionally feature a VSWR of 1.18 maximum at 40GHz. SMP male PCB connectors are available in vertical surface-mount, vertical surface-mount thru-hole (for extra board retention), and edge-mount configurations. They are notably supplied in three levels of detent, each with different engage and disengage coupling forces: full detent, limited detent, and smooth bore. The full detent provides the highest insertion and withdrawal forces and the smooth bore offers the lowest. Bomar’s cable-ended SMP female connectors accommodate cable sizes 0.047, 0.085, and 0.086 diameter semi-rigid or conformable coaxial cable. Additional cable sizes are available upon request.

Specifically engineered to accommodate high-density packaging, the series’ size and ease of installation makes it well suited for a wide range of mission-critical applications in the aerospace, telecom, broadband, defense, instrumentation, and microwave market segments. The parts are most commonly specified for use in such multiple-port, high-density modular packaging applications such as communication equipment, satellites, phased arrays, and active antennas, along with ground, airborne, and ship-born radar.

The devices are supplied in a variety of standard gold plate and custom-plating alternatives.
