SMA

SMA

SMA is an acronym for SubMiniature version A and was developed in the 1960’s. Using a threaded interface, 50 Ohm SMA connectors are precision subminiature units that provide excellent electrical performance from DC to 26.5 GHz. These high-performance connectors are compact in size and mechanically have outstanding durability. Built in accordance with MIL-PRF-39012 and CECC 22110/111, SMA connectors can be mated with all connectors that meet these spec mating diameters regardless of manufacturer.

2,92 mm

2,92 mm

The 2.92mm connector was developed for use to 40 GHz. The male pin is shorter than that of an SMA or 3.5mm to ensure that the outer contacts of the male and female connectors engage before the pin and female receptacle do. This ensures that the pin and socket will not see excessive wear and mating stress seen by misalignment in an SMA or 3.5mm connector. The 2.92mm connector also has a thicker wall than a standard SMA. The 2.92mm series mates with SMA and 3.5mm connectors.

2,4 mm

2,4 mm

The 2.4mm connector was developed for use to 50 GHz. This connector series uses a thick outer wall to eliminate the fragility seen in SMA and 2.92mm connectors. The female socket is also strengthened to ensure reliable mating. The 2.4mm series mates with SMA, 3.5mm and 2.92mm connectors with adapters and can mate with the 1.85mm series without adapters.

1,85 mm

1,85 mm

The 1.85mm connector was designed for mode free operation through 65 GHz. The interface uses a mostly airdielectric with a support bead that is set back in the body of the connector to reduce bead interaction in a mated pair. Like the 2.92mm and 2.4mm connector, the body has been designed to ensure that the outer conductors engage before the center conductors make contact. The 1.85mm interface uses an M7 thread and is compatible only with the 2.4mm interface. SV Microwave supplies adapters to mate 1.85mm connectors to SMA and 2.92mm connectors.
