Amphenol RF has introduced a line of customisable SMA panel mount receptacles. These connectors provide outstanding VSWR performance up to 18GHz. Multiple flange sizes are offered, including two and four-hole flange configurations. Termination options incorporate post contacts with extended PTFE insulators as well as solder cup, tab and slotted contacts which make the connector ideal for a broad assortment of microwave component applications.
The stainless steel machined connector bodies are passivated, or gold plated. Centre contacts are machined from Beryllium copper and are gold-plated. Mechanical or epoxy centre contact captivation assures stability and a reliable PCB connection. Standard sizes are provided for quick delivery and custom contact, and dielectric lengths may be chosen with the company's easy to use part number configurator.
SMA panel mount receptacles are excellent for microwave applications such as RF amplifiers, attenuators, detectors, microwave filters, couplers, power dividers and combiners, receivers and transceivers, and solid-state switches.
