Molex Inc. and Radiall have expanded their SMP-MAX series with new symmetrical adapters and RF coaxial interconnect solutions for board-to-board, module-to-module and panel-to-panel telecom applications.
As a second source, Molex is designing, manufacturing and marketing these connectors for global customers.
The new SMP-MAX symmetrical adapters eliminate the risk of assembly errors during manufacturing. The SMP-MAX can handle a maximum board-to-board distance tolerance of up to at least 2.00 mm (0.078”) gap without a spring. It also features a 3 degree tilt (radial travel), it has an operating frequency range of DC-6 GHz, a 1.2 max VSWR up to 3 GHz, and it can handle up to 300 Watts of power at 2.7 GHz.
