< SSMB & SCMS Interface Dimensions

Since its founding in 1984, Coaxial Components Corp. (Coaxicom) has been a leading source for Microwave & RF connectors and adapters for the domestic and international markets. The company continues to provide a growing line of products suited for a variety of applications.

Following the acquisition of AEP (Applied Engineering Products) by the French company, Radiall, inventories and availability of subminiature and microminiature connectors have been limited across the industry. Coaxicom has recently expanded its manufacturing resources to fill that void in the marketplace.

Coaxicom’s lines of subminiature and micro-miniature connectors are well suited for low-profile, high-frequency requirements. SMB (snap-on) and SMC (screw-on) subminiature series are designed for applications operating to 4 GHz (SMB) or 10 GHz (SMC). Coaxicom offers both 50 and 75 Ohm versions. The series relatively small size allows flexibility in applications where space is limited. Coaxicom’s SSMB and SSMC micro-miniatures series are 75 percent smaller and designed for applications operating to 12 GHz.

RF Connector Research Tool Available Online For Speedy Delivery In Days.

For decades, manufacturers across North America have been producing a variety of industry standard RF connectors, each with a unique series of part numbers to identify the product line. Over time, many companies have merged, closed, or transitioned to new numbering systems. For industry purchasing agents, locating replacement parts can be time consuming and frustrating. After waiting 6 – 12 weeks for delivery, a mismatched part number often results in project delays and inaccuracy in shipments.

As a leader in the RF connector industry for more than 30 years, Coaxial Components Corp. has developed a foremost research tool for cross referencing the company’s extensive database of RF components. The database encompasses product lines from more than a dozen manufacturers and dates back to the early 1970s.

“We have received excellent feedback from our customers who utilize the online resource on a weekly basis,” says Julian Andrews, Operations Manager for Coaxial Components Corp. “Whether purchasing through our company or working with our distributors, the online tool provides valuable information that was previously unavailable.”

The database of RF connector components includes BNC, SMA, TNC, SSMA, type-N, and all SSMB series. In addition, SMB, SMC, MCX and MMCX connectors are included. The company continues to provide innovative solutions for complex microwave and RF challenges throughout the world.

Coax cable assemblies

Coaxicom Cable Assemblies

Cable Assemblies:Right angle adapters using the semi rigid cable approach provide a cost-effective and dependable alternate to radius swept adapters.

[Coaxicom.com, Cable Assemblies rev. August, 19, 2016] – Right Angle cable connectors cause significant reduction in the electrical performance of cable assemblies, particularly at higher frequencies. The 3221-1-L series of pre-bent right angle assemblies uses the center conductor of .141 “semi rigid cable as the contact. This fact, combined with an ultra-short SMA plug provides the same or smaller profile as a right angle connector without the performance penalty. User specified lengths to 60” are available.
Typical VSWR of these assemblies is 1.10 to 18 GHz, while a similar assembly using a conventional right angle connector is typically 1.30. Right angle adapters using the semi rigid cable approach provide a cost-effective and dependable alternate to radius swept adapters, which have limited availability. An SMA plug to SMA plug swept cable assembly has a typical VSWR of 1.17 at 18GHz.

Bent assemblies and adapters using other connectors and cable are also available.

Coaxicom's 7mm adapters

Coaxicom 7MM Adapters

Comments off 2978 Views1

With the proliferation of test equipment that use precision 7 mm (APC-7‘) connectors, Coaxial Components Corp. (Coaxicom) has once again expanded its’ line of 7 mm series adapters.

Each adapter uses a 7 mm connector on one side, and either a type N, TNC, SMA, SSMA, 3.5 mm, or BNC on the other. The coupling mechanism is stainless steel to ensure ruggedness and repeatability.

All Coaxicom 7 mm adapters with the exception of the BNC series are specified to 18 GHz, and have excellent VSWR. The type N versions (3712-9 male, 3713-9 female) feature a maximum VSWR of 1.05:1, while the TNC series (3710-9 male, 3711-9 female) have a 1.12:1 maximum VSWR. The SMA (3909-9 male, 3908-9 female) and the 3.5 mm (3.5909-9 male, 3.5908-9 female) maintain a VSWR of 1.07:1. SSMA adapters (7902-9 male, 7901-9 female) have a VSWR of 1.10:1 maximum. The BNC adapters (2702-9 male, 2701-9 female) have a maximum VSWR of 1.04:1 at 4 GHz, but due to their precision construction are useable to at least 6 GHz.

For information on the adapters described or other products from Coaxicom’s broad line of connectors, adapters, terminations, attenuators, phase adjusters, and cable assemblies; contact our Sales Department at 866.COAXICOM (262.9426) or via email to sales@coaxicom.com.
