EP-SMA 27 GHz connectors, adaptors, and cable assemblies from TE Connectivity are now being shipped by distributor Mouser Electronics.

The EP-SMA 27 GHz portfolio provides engineers with increased bandwidth, power and performance that are ideal for 5G, automated test equipment, aerospace and defence, wireless devices, and radar.

Low insertion loss, plus exceptional voltage standing wave ratios (VSWR) of <1.15 (max.) for adaptors and <1.20 for cable assemblies are features of the portfolio.

The components have the same footprint as SMA-6 GHz, 12 GHz and 18 GHz solutions, which means designers can often avoid altering existing layouts to expand frequencies up to 27 GHz or higher-signal SMA performance.

Using these connectors in an upgrade can provide a cost savings of up to 50% in applications currently using 2.92 mm (40 GHz) or 3.5 mm (33 GHz) products performing at 27 GHz or lower.

Additionally, the products’ robust high-quality materials allow up to 500 mating cycles.
