The SMA series is a very popular coax connector with threaded coupling and can be used up to frequencies of over 18GHz depending on type. The impedance is controlled at 50ohm and connector styles are available for flexible, conformable and semi-rigid cable types.
Versions of the SMA connector are available for mounting to printed circuit boards using both through-hole soldered and through-hole press-fit techniques, as well as surface mount types (SMT). Solder, crimp and clamp techniques are used to terminate to cables and SMA applications include communications, satellite and testing equipment.
Mating face sealing for SMA connectors between plug and jack (mated) according to IP68. Please note that this classification is a general statement for the relevant series and individual connectors may deviate from the values shown. If in doubt, please consult our engineers.
