Amphenol RF has introduced a new configuration of SMA to SMP assemblies to its extensive line of fixed-length cable assemblies. This assembly comprises a straight SMA plug with a right-angle SMP plug and uses the Tflex 405 cable type from Amphenol Times Microwave Systems which is a flexible alternative to semi-rigid coax. The SMA to SMP assembly is remarkably versatile and can be used in defence and test and measurement applications, as well as wireless infrastructure.
The SMA plug provides a gold-plated, stainless steel anti-torque body whilst the SMP plug is constructed with gold-plated, beryllium copper. The right-angle SMP also offers a lower mated height with no bend radius for applications with small size needs. This assembly supplies outstanding electrical performance up to 18GHz and is offered in multiple standard lengths.
These cable assemblies join a robust portfolio of multiple SMA and SMP in-series and between-series options. Variations include waterproof IP67 sealed and ruggedised solutions to meet project-specific needs and support designs in harsh environments.
