Pasternack Low-Frequency SMP Series Connectors

Pasternack Enterprises’ new SMP connectors are specifically designed for low-frequency, high-density applications where small RF connectors are beneficial. Common uses for these 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% to 75% when compared to standard SMP connectors.

Pasternack’s low-frequency SMP connectors are typically attached to cable assemblies using RG178, RG405, and 0.047″ diameter semi-rigid cable. The connectors utilize beryllium copper (BeCu) and Kovar alloy at critical contact points in their designs, while brass and stainless steel are used in non-contact areas. These new lower-frequency SMP versions are also compatible and fully mateable with Corning Gilbert GPO connectors.
