Based on proven performance features, the new generation offers optimised external dimensions for installations where space is limited and is particularly robust and resistant to fire and strong heat. Find out more.
During the Small Satellites conference, the discussion will be around the technical issues, development considerations, and new opportunities that result from an ever-growing trend toward missions using tens, hundreds, or even thousands of small satellites.
HUBER+SUHNER connector series SMP-SL, SMPM, SMPM-T, SMP, MMCX and MMPX are mainly used for connections to a PCB. The different connector series offer a wide range of products suitable for various applications.
HUBER+SUHNER MMCX connectors are intended for use in applications where the smallest dimensions have to be achieved. These connectors can be used in applications from DC to 6 GHz. The reliable "snap-on" coupling mechanism ensures that the electrical parameters are consistently reproduced. Due to its non-slotted outer contact, the MMCX series provides a low RF leakage. In addition, HUBER+SUHNER SMT MMCX connectors fully meet today’s SMT (Surface Mount Technology) requirements with superior design, material selection and packaging. HUBER+SUHNER SMT connectors are suitable to all reflow-soldered SMT-PCBs where impedance matching or screened signal transmission is necessary.
HUBER+SUHNER SMP connectors provide a robust, proven and fully compatible plug-in solution for applications up to 40 GHz. SMP connectors have been MIL-SPEC qualified for defense and space flight hardware. The design of the interface and treatment of materials provide true compatibility as well as guaranteed mechanical performance over the mating life of the connector with all MIL-STD-348 SMP connectors in the market.
HUBER+SUHNER SMPM connectors offer unrivalled miniaturisation and performance for RF applications up to 65 GHz. SMPM connectors are MIL-SPEC qualified for defense and space flight applications. Along with the unique bend-to-the-end Microbend style cable connectors, HUBER+SUHNER offers a large portfolio of different PCB mount SMPM connectors that have been designed with optimised PCB trace launch geometries to offer a complete interconnect design solution from "wire-to-trace".
SMPM-T is 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 centreline-to-centreline spacing of just 5 mm (0.20 in) while offering unmatched electrical stability at frequencies up to 67 GHz in even the harshest operating environments.
HUBER+SUHNER SMP-SL (Self-Lock) is designed to ensure reliable electrical and mechanical performance in even the most extreme Aerospace & Defense environments.The unique and innovative combination of a MIL-STD-348 SMP interface together with a low profile self-locking design provides an integral solution offering with exceptional electrical and mechanical performance.
The locking mechanism has a visual inspection feature to confirm fully mated position and perceptible click when fully mated. SMP-SL connectors can only be de-mated with a dedicated removal tool to eliminate the risk of unintentional de-mating. The connector design retains the small form factor and future proof 40 GHz frequency range of a standard SMP interface per MIL-STD-348. SMP-SL connectors are 30% smaller in size and 66% lower in mass compared to equivalent solutions available in the market.
The initial product portfolio covers the most common applications needs with cable connectors, panel mount, board mount connectors, adaptors and de-mating tools. Cable connectors are available with Space grade light-weight, low loss SUCOFLEX cables, solderless minibend style cables and conformable Semi Rigid cables. The SMP-SL product line has Space Flight heritage and is qualified per MIL-STD-39012.
