QuarterBack®

 QuarterBack®
Description: 

SV Microwave’s secure locking SMP/SMPM QuarterBack® connector line utilizes a quarter turn bayonet style coupling nut with a locking feature for standard SMP/SMPM interfaces.  These connectors are ideal for high vibration and test applications that require a large number of mating cycles.  We offer cable connectors, board mount and PCB edge launch connectors, cable assemblies and adapters.

Features / Benefits & Applications
Features / Benefits: 

 

  • Quarter turn bayonet locking feature on standard SMP/SMPM interface
  • Female cable connector options available for all flexible cable types .085" diameter and smaller
  • All standard SMP/SMPM male connector options available upon request
  • Low VSWR through 40 GHz (SMP) / 65 GHz (SMPM)
  • Zero disengagement eliminates damage to PCB solder joints
  • Low insertion/extraction forces, compared to standard full detent SMP and SMPM, mean less torque on board mount connector solder joints during mating and de-mating
  • Spring loaded positive mating features allows excellent electrical performance even in extreme vibration environments
  • Low mating forces allow for more mating cycles without failure compared to full detent SMP and SMPM

Applications

  • Bench-top testing
  • High vibration environments
  • Applications requiring a high number of mating cycles
  • Military and Commercial
