Amphenol RF has introduced an end launch plug into its high-frequency SMA product line. Like it popular high-frequency SMA endlaunch jacks, this plug offers exceptional VSWR performance up to 26.5 GHz and features an optimized end launch design with traditional slide-on mounting legs. This 50-ohm connector makes an ideal PCB connector solution for high-frequency applications.
The high-frequency SMA end launch plug is precision machined with a brass body and beryllium copper contact, both of which are gold plated. It also features a PTFE insulator designed to withstand high temperatures.
Amphenol’s high-frequency SMA end launch connector series includes through-hole and traditional edge-launch jack options for a variety of PCB thicknesses, in addition to captivated 0.010 and 0.015 in. diameter center contacts that will accommodate different substrate widths. Custom solutions are also available for optimization to customer-specific PCB launches. Thehigh-frequency SMA end launch connectors are ideal for use in most microwave filter, cellular and broadband amplifier, and wireless infrastructure applications.
