Government designation BMA (Blindmate A) was developed in the 1980's. The originally designated OSP™ connector by M/A-Com has excellent electrical performance up to 22 GHz in a compact size. SV Microwave offers extended frequencies on most BMA connector designs up to 26.5 GHz. With a slide-on interface and a connector durability of 5000 cycles, the BMA blindmate is suitable for high performance microwave applications.
