• About SMP Series

Introduction

SMP bullet connectors at high frequencies can go up to DC to 40 GHz. The SMP bullet connector was developed to meet the need for a smaller high frequency compact design that incorporates ease of use and functionality. The SMP bullet connector is the heart of this unique design. The bullet is designed to allow the joining of two RF Modules by captivating the bullet between the two shrouds. This mounting method allows for higher density of connectors and by design the SMP bullet connector allows for misalignment to compensate for tolerance stack up. With significant withdrawal forces on the full detent shroud the SMP connector has become a standard for quick and effective interconnects using both semi-rigid and flexible cables. The “Push-on” design allows the install to mate connectors without the need for threads or wrenches. Today’s industry requires both innovation and flexibility, and the SMP bullet connector meets that challenge.
