RF SMA Coaxial Connector

The SMB name derives from SubMiniature B (the second subminiature design). Developed in the 1960′s, the SMB is a smaller version of the SMA with snap-on coupling. Amphenol’s SMB connectors conform to the requirements of MIL-C-39012, and the interface is in compliance with MIL-STD-348. Available in 50 Ω and 75 Ω impedance, the SMB provides broadband capability through 4 GHz with a snap-on connector design and utilizes die cast components on non-critical areas to provide a low-cost solution.

Features & Benefits
Broadband performance with low reflection DC to 4 GHz provides low cost connector combined with high quality.
Quick connect/disconnect snap-on mating reduces installation time.
Various plating options in nickel, gold, and tin lead. Selective plating provides corrosion resistance finish as well as good solderability characteristics.
SMB PCB slide-on plug and jack allows board-to-board mounting with a low insertion force. This is ideal for mating a high number of connectors on a pair of PCB’s.
