Bomar's New SMP Interface System Boasts Superior RF Performance from DC to 40 GHz

Press release date: Jan 11, 2013

Rugged Subminiature Devices Optimized For High Frequency, High Data Rate RF Coaxial Applications

Ledgewood, NJ, -- Bomar Interconnect Products, Inc. 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 max at 40GHz. SMP male PCB connectors are available in vertical surface mount, vertical surface mount through-hole (for extra board retention), and in edge mount configurations.  They are notably supplied in three levels of detent, each with different engage and disengage coupling forces. The three levels are: full detent, limited detent and smooth bore.  The full detent provides the highest insertion and withdrawal forces and the smooth bore, the lowest.  Bomar's cable ended SMP female connectors are offered to 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 as communication equipment, satellites, phased arrays and active antennas, along with ground, airborne and ship-borne radar.     

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

In quantities of 1,000, distributor pricing for Bomar’s SMP male PCB connectors start at $6.67 each; and female cable mount connector prices start at $6.75 each.  Delivery is from stock to 12 weeks.  Samples are available.   www.bomarinterconnect.comSMP.htm
