Coaxial Components Corp., an industry leader for over 30-years has recently expanded its line of SMP micro-miniature push-on connectors and adapters. Designated the 032 series, Coaxicom’s SMP connectors are compatible with the Gilbert GPO™ and the Tyco OSMP™. They are 50 Ω connectors rated to 40 GHz with low VSWR, and feature small size and rugged interface to support high density packaging.
Coaxicom’s standard SMP configurations include straight, right angle, panel mounted, PCB, cable connectors and adapters. Male connectors and shrouds are available in full detent, limited detent, and smooth bore designs.
A typical low profile blind mate application uses flange mounted shrouds on adjacent panels connected via a “bullet” adapter to provide sufficient “float” for reliable mating. One side of the adapter (PN 032010-1) mates with a limited detent shroud (PN 032020-1) using the pin of a glass-to-metal hermetic seal installed in a panel as the center contact. The other side of the adapter mates with a smooth bore shroud (PN032015-1) installed in the second panel. This configuration keeps mating forces low, and retains the adapter in the limited detent shroud when the panels are separated.
