SMPM RF connectors are 30% smaller than standard SMP connectors, Molex says, reducing system weight, while delivering excellent frequency performance and design flexibility in board-to-board blind-mate applications.
The connectors are MIL-PRF-39012 compliant for aerospace/defence applications requiring optimal frequency performance. Providing reliable electrical performance without degradation through multiple mating cycles, the SMPM blind-mate interface self-aligns to withstand radial and axial misalignment (up to 0.25 mm) inherent with board-to-board mating. The push-on design eliminates the need for threads or tools for installation.
Molex SMPM RF Blind-Mate connectors are available in custom bullet lengths and multi-port interface styles to cover a range of custom board-to-board application specifications. SMPM RF Blind-Mate Connectors are compatible with Molex Temp-Flex coaxial flexible microwave cable for terminations and assemblies at an overall lower cost.
