    Amphenol RF releases a line of pre-configured SMA cable assemblies on LMR® 195 & 240 cables.

    Amphenol RF is pleased to introduce a line of SMA fixed length cable assemblies on LMR-195 and LMR-240 cables. This full Amphenol solution combines precision machined Amphenol RF SMA connectors with high performing LMR cables developed by Times Microwave, an Amphenol company. These pre-configured cable assemblies are designed to offer a lower loss option with superior electrical performance to standard cables.

    The LMR Cable Assemblies operate between DC to 6 GHz and are ideal for wireless communications systems and high performing applications such as base stations, antennas, and other telecommunication devices. The cable is constructed with a black polyethylene jacket, closed cell foam poly dielectric, and bonded tape conductor. All of these components work together to make the LMR cable more rugged compared to other braided cables. The 50 Ohm SMA connectors feature brass construction with gold plating.

    These new assemblies are offered in straight plug to straight plug, straight plug to right-angle plug, straight plug to bulkhead jack and right-angle to right-angle plug configurations. They are also available in standard imperial lengths of 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, and 48 inches, along with metric lengths of 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, and 1 meter. Custom lengths are available upon request.

    Amphenol RF expands its SMPM product line to include more connector choices for small package applications.  

    Amphenol RF is pleased to announce the expansion of our popular SMPM product line to include several new connector configurations. These connectors utilize the micro-miniature interface and perform at a frequency range of DC to 65 GHz. They are most commonly used in high-frequency coaxial applications with small package design requirements.

    The SMPM product line is available in full detent and smooth bore, both of which provide secure engagement and disengagement forces. Ideal applications include high-speed signal transmission and blind-mate, board-to-board systems using a floating bullet. The floating bullet provides a link between the mated pairs and compensates for radial and axial misalignment.

    Along with standard connectors, Amphenol RF offers a full line of adapters and fixed-length cable assemblies that are conveniently available through distribution.
