Expansion of the SMP-MAX Series of RF Coaxial Interconnect Solutions
Radiall and Molex introduce the expansion of the SMP-MAX Series of RF Coaxial Interconnect Solutions – featuring new symmetrical adapters and over 60 custom designed connectors.
Radiall and Molex Incorporated have expanded their cost-effective SMP-MAX series with new symmetrical adapters and RF coaxial interconnect solutions for board-to-board, module-to-module and panel-to-panel telecom applications. As a second source, Molex will manufacture and market the connectors.
The new SMP-MAX symmetrical adapters eliminate the risk of assembly errors during manufacturing. In addition, an unprecedented number of over 60 specific SMP-MAX connector designs have been developed over a very short 18 month period for global telecom customers, making SMP-MAX one of the fastest growing series in the RF industry. SMP-MAX is currently being deployed in numerous wireless telecom projects in North America, Europe, and Asia, as a cost-effective solution that is adaptable to virtually any configuration.
The SMP-MAX can handle a maximum board-to-board distance tolerance of up to at least 0.078” (2 mm) gap without a spring—which is 300 percent more than the standard SMP. It also features a 3 degree tilt (radial travel), it has an operating frequency range of DC-6 GHz, a 1.2 max VSWR guaranteed up to 3 GHz, and it can handle up to 300 Watts of power at 2.7 GHz.
This range of products is available from Rojone.
