Supplier of microwave and RF components, Fairview Microwave, has launched a product line of 45 BMA connectors with Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) as low as 1.2:1, and seven BMA adapters with VSWR as low as 1.15:1.
Applications include blind mating, Radio Frequency (RF) backplanes, rack and panel connectivity, high speed switching and use in phased array systems.
The company's line of 54 BMA connectors and BMA adapters provide a maximum operating frequency of 22GHz. They feature 50Ω impedance, gold-plated BeCu contacts and have an operating temperature range of -65°C to +125°C. Radial and axial float is offered in many of the models to help with alignment. Commercial versions are constructed of brass and military versions are made of stainless steel. These connectors and dapters are suitable for telecommunications and military electronics applications.
“Our BMA connectors and adapters make a great addition to our already extensive interconnect product line. As BMA interfaces are deployed globally, and have been for years, there is great need for these products across a wide variety of applications,” said Dan Birch, Product Manager.
