PSMP CONNECTOR SERIES

Amphenol RF PSMP connectors are the perfect solution for board-to-board applications requiring high power. With a minimum board spacing of 12.6 mm, the three-piece design allows maximum flexibility for high-density board spacing, and is an ideal solution for blindmate situations.

PSMP connectors are the best combination of SMPs and SMAs. They are compact, board-to-board designs capable of high-performance and high-frequency. The PSMP has the exact same PCB footprint as the SMP, allowing for easy conversion of applications for higher power handling.
