SAMTEC RF Connectors & Cable Assemblies

Samtec Precision RF Connectors and Cable Assemblies provide excellent repeatability and low VSWR, supporting designers with the electrical and mechanical performance needed for applications up to 110GHz. 

Samtec offers a complete set of cable assemblies as well as cable, bulkhead, and board level connectors, with board level options including compression, edge-mount, and through hole varieties. Samtec precision RF connectors are available in threaded versions from 1.00mm to 3.5mm. 

These connectors use an air dielectric design to minimize VSWR and insertion loss and provide coverage up to 110GHz. SMPM push-on connectors are 65GHz connectors that offer quick and easy mating in a footprint that is 30% smaller than conventional SMP connectors, with full detent and smooth bore styles for varying retention forces.
