Heilind Electronics recently introduced the Amphenol’s 2- and 4-port SMPS edge launch connectors. These products enable the transmission of extremely high frequencies (DC up to 100 GHz) while maintaining the smallest form factor. The connectors are 45% smaller than SMP and 30% smaller than SMPM versions.
Amphenol SV Microwave’s SMPS edge launch multiport connectors are directly compatible with the G3PO interface and feature full detent, limited detent (SMP only) and smooth bore options. SV Microwave’s current SMPS configurations include male and female cable connectors, as well as board mount, edge launch and female bullet designs. The male interface is available in smooth bore for easy mating and demating and full detent for a more robust retention.
The connectors are used for applications where density and frequency are of the utmost importance — including RF test and measurement, rapid prototyping, high-speed digital component testing, and military and aerospace.
