what is SMP connector

The SMP series comprises micro-miniature RF connectors with a snap coupling mechanism,suitable for use up to 12 GHz.The impedance is controlled at 50 Ω.The mate faces are designed in accordance with the MIL-STD-348A specification.Cable terminations are either crimp or solder designs,for flexible and semi-rigid cables.The SMP series connectors are primarily used in high-speed signal transmission lines.Board-to-Board PCB connectors can be realised using the so-called SMP 〝bullets〞

There are three different coupling mechanisms:

1)Smootth bore;

2)Limited detent:

3)Full detent.
