SMPM family offers new cable-to-board and board-to-board solutions

13-10-2021 | Samtec | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

Samtec now provides a full line of SMPM solutions with a maximum VSWR of 1.40 and frequency range of DC to 65GHz. SMPM micro-miniature connectors are excellent in high-frequency applications where push-on coupling is favoured due to space limitations, or blind-mate is needed. Single-port and multi-port solutions are offered.


Multi-port ganged cable assemblies (GC47 and GPPC Series) utilise a 0.047" low-loss flexible cable and an optimised latching system. Eight and ten port configurations on 0.14" (3.56mm) pitch are released.


The multi-port board-to-board system (GPPB Series) provides three board height options – 5.33 mm (0.21"), 8.31 mm (.327"), and 12.7 mm (0.500") – with full detent or smooth bore retention features.


Cable-to-board, single-port SMPM solutions are offered on 0.047" (RF047-A Series), 0.086" (RF086 Series) and Samtec-optimised low-loss flexible cable (RF23C Series) with optional End 2 connectors. SMPM board connectors offer surface mount, edge mount, and straight or right-angle through-hole terminations.


The company provides a full line of off-the-shelf products for microwave and mmWave applications from 18GHz to 110GHz. The precision RF product family supports next-generation technology advancements in wireless communication, automotive, radar, SATCOM, aerospace, defence, and test and measurement.
