MTT-S Product Showcase: Radiall/Molex
Radiall SMP-MAX board-to-board RF coax connectors are now available at Radiall or Molex. SMP-MAX features a patented impedance-matching insulator that is optimized for a larger operating gap between connectors, making it capable of handling a maximum board-to-board tilt (radial travel) of 3 degrees, and up to 0.078" (2 mm) of distance (axial) misalignment without a spring, which is 300 percent more than the standard SMP.
