Irvine, CA – Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., a leading ISO 9001:2008 registered manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, adds inventory of low frequency SMP connectors which are perfect for applications requiring operating frequencies of 8 GHz or less.
Pasternack Enterprises’ new SMP connectors are specifically designed for low frequency, high density applications where the benefits of a small RF connector are utilized. 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 8 GHz SMP connectors carry the same “small-footprint” advantages as their higher-frequency counterparts, but are a more cost effective option when a 40 GHz 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 cables 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 mate-able with Corning Gilbert GPO™ connectors.
“Increasing requirements for high density applications have driven the communications industry to utilize ‘small-footprint’ connectors, such as the SMP” says Gerry Camacho, VP of Technical Marketing at Pasternack Enterprises, Inc. “We are pleased to offer these new low frequency 8 GHz SMP’s, as they can provide significant cost savings up to 75% when compared to an equivalent 40 GHz version.”
The new low frequency SMP connectors from Pasternack are available now.
