Amphenol RF has expanded its SMA connector series to include additional jack configurations designed exclusively for flexible micro-coax cable types to support space-constrained applications. Micro-coax cables provide for extra flexibility and less bulk, making them the best choice in space-constrained designs. Ultraminiature SMA jacks are excellent for applications including telecommunications and wireless technology.

SMA connectors are lightweight and compact and deliver reliable RF performance up to 6GHz. Their high-strength design and threaded coupling mechanism combat vibration, which provides secure mating. These SMA jacks are formed with gold-plated brass bodies with gold-plated, beryllium copper contacts. They use a larger back end to improve the compatibility options of other connectors that can be paired with them.

The additional jack configurations join a robust grouping of previously released RF connectors and cable assemblies designed for and on various micro-coax cable types. This cable group's high degree of flexibility can stabilise the electrical characteristics even if bent. This added feature provides for more versatility and comprehensive design possibilities.
