SMA Connectors

TE Connectivity AMP offers a complete line of SMA connectors designed to satisfy the growing demand for SMA connectors in the wireless communications industry. The SMA product line offers stainless-steel bodies, as well as non-ferrous metals. Various plating options are available, including gold and white bronze. The SMA interface is fully compatible with MIL-C-39012.

To satisfy the broad range of commercial applications, SMA connectors are available in a broad range of standard configurations including straight and right-angle cable applied plugs, bulkhead cable jacks, two and four-hole flange-mount panel jacks, straight and right-angle PCB-mount jacks, and various between and in-series adapters. Numerous packaging and testing options are also available to meet specific system criteria.

The three-piece SMA offering is designed especially for applications in mobile phone infrastructure where Inter-Modulation Products (IMP) must be minimized. By limiting non-linearities within the connectors, IMP is reduced and increased channel capacity can be offered.
