Admiral Microwaves – Miniature microwave SMP connectors are hermetically sealed (AT37H-6483-FD)Aug 10 2012 - [More Articles]
Admiral Microwaves now offers the Aaren Technology model AT37H-6483-FD, an innovative hermetically-sealed SMP subminiature connector specifically designed for manufacturers of high-frequency microwave modules in the wireless communications, defence, avionics, medical and test sectors.
The AT37H-6483-FD is a male thread-in connector ideally suited to incorporation into microwave modules needing multiple coax inputs/outputs in the minimum smallest possible space. Overall dimensions are 6.7mm x 3.95mm. Offering excellent performance from DC to 26GHz, the connector features a glass bead hermetic seal over the gold-plated Kovar centre contact.
The Aaren SMP connector has a high-frequency push-fit design, fully compatible with the well-established GPO range from Corning Gilbert. The SMP Male thread-in is specified with a ‘full detent’ interface which requires a high mate / de-mate force. This delivers a more positive mating action, thereby ensuring a higher reliability interface, which is essential for high-performance microwave module applications.
Electrical specifications feature performance up to 26GHz, with a maximum VSWR of 1.2:1. Insertion loss is typically better than 0.1dB to 12GHz and 0.2dB to 26GHz. The RoHS compliant connector’s SMP Male thread-in is also specified for a maximum of 500 mate / de-mate cycles.More news from Admiral Microwaves
