SMPM-T, the smallest threaded open source connector on the market

HUBER+SUHNER Astrolab is launching the smallest threaded open source connector on the market, the SMPM-T.

SMPM-T, the smallest threaded open source connector on the market

Its unique and innovative combination of a MIL-STD-348 SMPM female interface connector together with a retractable threaded nut provides an integrated solution offering unprecedented electrical and mechanical performance. The SMPM-T handles high density requirements with a connector centerline-to-centerline spacing of just 5 mm (0.20 inch) while offering unmatched electrical stability at frequencies up to 67 GHz in even the harshest operating environments.

The SMPM-T connector is available along with HUBER+SUHNER Astrolab`s industry driving microbend «bend-to-the-end» technology that is already qualified for any aerospace application. The SMPM-T connector complies with the hi-rel material restrictions of NASA while still offering full compliance with RoHS and REACH legislation in the commercial market.

Features and benefits:

  • No electrical length and phase variation under vibration, shock or any other kind of movement.
  • The smallest threaded interface available that complies with MIL-STD-348. 
  •  A mated SMPM-T connector pair offers a 75% size and 80% mass reduction in comparison to a SMA connector solution. 
  •  Advantage of 10 times higher mating cycles and reduced mating and demating force.
