A SMPM line of high performance products has been announced by Amphenol RF. SMPM interconnects offer high performance in a sub-miniature package, with versatile connectivity options. SMPM cable connectors are available in straight and right-angle configurations, for 1.19 and 2.18mm diameter semi-rigid and conformable cables, as well as RG-178 flexible coax.

The connectors are made from beryllium copper or brass with gold plating, for durability of use and maximum electrical performance.

SMPM PCB connectors are also machined from brass and plated gold for solderability and high-frequency electrical performance. PCB connectors are available in many configurations, including surface mount, through-hole leg, or edge mount terminations. When used in conjunction with SMPM bullet adapters, a minimum PCB spacing of 8.65mm can be achieved, and are ideal for blindmate situations.

SMPM connectors are designed to operate in high frequency board to board applications up to 65GHz, or with cable solutions optimised to meet the frequency limits of the cable. SMPM connectors have a snap-on mating style similar to the SMP, and are suitable for a wide range of precision and miniaturised applications including antennas, handheld radios, military communication systems, and instrumentation and measurement equipment.
